Local not global deli days out and new Civic Society pocket companion map.

I have recently created a map for Jo at the Local not global deli on Chilwell Road (click to enlarge):

I was quite strict with myself and did not include Skylink days out because this would involve a walk down to Queens Road, whereas this map is all about where the buses and tram travelling along Chilwell Road in Beeston go. Add in Skylink and list grows by 50%:

Sawley Marina
Castle Donington Musuem
East Midlands Airport Aeropark
Donington Park Grand Prix Museum
Diseworth Museum
Kegworth Museum
Loughborough Town Hall Art Gallery
Loughborough Great Central Railway.

I have also created an extended version of my original Beeston & District Civic Society Pocket Companion map. The 2016 version includes an inset map for Stapleford town centre and the map has been extended to the west to include Toton and to the the est to include Wollaton. To do this on an A3 sheet of paper, the map has to be distorted if you want to include any detail.

I am thinking of including hotels and b&bs in the next version. Space is always the decider.

The Civic Society map will be made available this coming Saturday at the Beeston Festival and the Lakeside History Fair on the south side of the University of Nottingham main campus beside Highfields Park. It is a pity the two events are on the same day, but such is life!

Another version of the map will appear shortly with all the Heritage Open Days in the area this coming September marked. Watch this space.
