The South-East Tip Mapping Party

The South-east of England includes towns and villages like Canterbury, Ramsgate, Whistable, Dover and Folkestone. As well as being home to some of the UK's most beautiful countryside, this area is a gateway to the UK - hosting the busy ports of Dover and Folkestone.

OSM has some coverage of these areas - but not nearly enough. Come and help make a free map for the far South East of England.




The weekend of the 12th - 13th May 2007.


We'll be based in Canterbury, a central location from where we can survey the paths and roads of Kent. You can see the area here on the slippy map.

Saturday Morning - Meet in Cafe Nero, 4 High St, Canterbury, Kent, CT1 2SA at 10:00am- here on the slippy map (Its on the main High Street).

Saturday Evening - Meet at Ye Old Beverly at 6pm to review the days progress and sample the local wares

Getting there

By Train - There are regular train services from London Waterloo to Canterbury. Canterbury is only 22 minutes by train from Ashford International, which has connecting services to continental Europe, via Eurostar. There are also regular trains from Dover ferry port.

By Road - Canterbury is less than 45 minutes drive from both the M2 and M20 motorways, and around 1.5 hours drive from London.
