UK canal and river map created using both public data and user contributions. Points of interest are overlaid on maps of the UK's navigable canals and rivers, and include entries for navigation (locks, bridges, junctions, turning points), boater services (water points, toilet pumpouts, etc.), and commercial services especially relevant to continuous or long-term cruising (e.g. laundry services)

The map is generated with help fellow boaters and we welcome your adding missing items to the map.
Over 700 items have been added based on user submissions so far, including convenience stores, laundry services, as well as a list of high quality mooring spots, and some hidden gems like private marinas or mooring locations where public access is allowed to waste disposal other boater services.

New user contributions are added periodically, and the map will auto update automatically when new points of interest are added

Happy boating...

Great App

As a novice on the canals this has been really useful, it would be great to see pubs and eateries added as POI to allow you to plan evening stop, maybe with an option to comment on the premises.

Useful App, but some info needs updating

In the main, this is a useful App for learning routes within the network and planning journeys; but there are numerous instances of canal network maintenance advice which is seriously out of date, as the work has long since been completed - and if the App is out of date on completed work, the concern is that it might not be up-to-date on imminent or current work. Even so, there are advantages over carrying multiple copies of “Nicholson’s” and, therefore, I give this App 3.5 stars, but it would be 4.5 stars if this issue was resolved.

Great app! Used this a lot to plan my bike rides along the tow paths.
Improvement suggestion would be to incorporate a route planner like on the website 👍🏻
