A map on a Monday

      Here's the third of a series of linocut maps, all printed in monochrome, that were produced for a book produced by Caught by The River and called, appropriately, 'Caught by the river, A COLLECTION OF WORDS ON WATER', the book was first published in 2009. 
      This linocut 'map' illustrates a chapter written by Roy Wilkinson about a London river, the River Wandle, that rises in the North Downs in Surrey eleven miles from its confluence with the Thames in Wandsworth. Did you know Admiral Lord Nelson fly-fished the Wandle for trout? There are loads more interesting facts in the chapter about its rebirth and it is one of my favourites.
      Next month there will be another map on a Monday from the same series.
