croydon canal on google earth

Hi I think I've got nearer what I was attempting with this. (thanks to a bit of help from Henry Rothwell at 'Digital Digging') I dont know how useful it is, but I find it fascinating to see the area as it was so long ago. this is very much a work in progress, so please feel free to add anything, ame...

If Will wants to show an artistic representation of what the Croydon Canal might have looked like from the air--without presenting any contrast or comparison--then he's done a bloody good job in my opinion...... .........I think Will has achieved what he set out to do. The route of the superimposed...

oh well.....

I dont think I'll bother again, then... I'd imagined it was quite interesting, and for an evenings work, quite inspired...... I thought, with a bit of work, a zoomable, navigable image could be created....all very time team, i suppose.... It certainly helped me visualise things better.....dry maps a...

Hi Steve. I have to say I only really concentrated on the canal route for this first attempt.... leaving a few roads etc that were vaguely contemporary, the fields are for the most part random....I just wanted to see if the idea was valid.before setting out on the full job....actual houses and field...

try this...much better resolution

This is a better version via flickr... I realise it isnt perfect...but it DOES show the canal , in place more or less as it was.... the north wood is obviously more extensive than in reality....but i was mainly concentrating on the canal route ...the bridge over the canal is also a work in progress....

perhaps its the resolutiion on that image...i'll try flickr

Hi I've been studying Forest Hill and Sydenham history for many years, and recently returned to the subject via the internet, which has led me to many amazing discoveries and old images etc. I've always been particularly fascinated by the Croydon canal ...so, with my new knowledge and a bit of digit...
