W. Stanton's Map of Mendip Depressions


New member
Willie Stanton's famous map on which he recorded hundreds of Mendip karst depression features (many now lost to farming or development) has been made available by the MCRA for viewing as a Google Earth overlay:


Big thanks to Tom Harrison for the painstaking work of digitising and geo-referencing these maps for us.

If you have Google Earth visit http://www.mcra.org.uk/stanton_maps/Mendip_Maps_Stanton.kml to view the map; it's also now included as part of the full Google Earth cave registry browser.
