    Is there a map of UK rivers available on the net? I've had a quick look and can't find a detailed river map. I'm not wanting to navigate, but would like to see where local small rivers end up.

    Thanks for the replies, but they don't go far enough to show the 2 rivers local to me (Maun and Meden). They are only very small rivers so I imagine it would have to be a detailed map.

    Have you tried Ordinance survey - might take you a while, but they're pretty detailed.

    I'd also look at these maps at the Environment agency. I can't seem to make them work - but you might have more luck.

    Try the environement agency: Their "flood risk" maps probably includes most waterways.

    I find Google Earth too detailed for this purpose. If only I could switch off all the roads and other stuff and just see the rivers :)
