    no, I haven't checked them out .. but if someone wants to finance a trip I'll be happy to do it :Cool:

    the first page has over 200 under 11'ft 6in ..

    no way of filtering .. but you could lift the pois that you want and make a new map .. :Wink:

    There is a very low bridge at Broughton, Deeside North Wales, on Broughton Hall road. I know of 2 accidents when removal vans lost the top of there roof.

    Since then, about 1999, there are warnings and auto flashing lights on the approach. it is possible to see the warning light stand on the google sat map.

    This bridge is not indicated on this google map so there may be other errors, so don't take this map as gospel.

    Thanks Doug .. I can add that to the map if you give me the co-ords. this is the sort of info that makes maps more reliable.

    There are no doubts errors and or omissions on all maps, paper and digital .. I upload in good faith. Many POIs are provided by third parties, for example the CC sites, Low Bridges falls into this category.

    Member generated maps such as Olley's and my own are better, because we have personally visited the site or have had it verified by another motorhomer.

    What we need and I hope we get are maps that have been compiled by Fun members.. For example, a trip to Spain, showing stopping places, sites and any other useful travel information..

    Google says its N53.1679043 W2.982796

    But I don't trust it, it has more number in the northerly that it does in the Westerly

    Tomtom Says its N53'10.087 W2'58.957

    The hight is very low, but a Man with an umbrella can touch the roof.
