New map of Heaton Park

We have a brand new map of Heaton Park – in a few weeks a British Schools Championship will be using it. Spent a long afternoon sorting out how the Permanent Course posts have been affected – just a few reworded descriptions. Photo is a family of swans out on manoeuvres on the northmost lake.

New Shopping Sytem now online

You may notice that everything to do with buying maps is now different. If you find any problems, please let us know (see contact details in the page footer).

The big advantage of the new system is that if you pay electronically for PDF maps, you will instantly get a link to download them.

New Shopping System on the way

You may have noticed that the shopping cart items have disappeared from the park pages and the only way to buy a map is now from the GetaMap page.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be moving onto a new shopping system. This will enable us to cope with card-processing changes to do with Strong Customer Authentication (which is probably behind the recent update-your-details stuff you’ve had from assorted on-line banks).

It should also enable PDF purchases to be immediately downloadable.

Please bear with us, and let us know if there’s anything that doesn’t work for you.

Queens Park Heywood update

Busy Spring day in Queens Park Heywood – 3 missing posts replaced (picture is YY), and a missing plaque. Also half-a-dozen minor map corrections. Herons and swans visible on their nests, with lots of geese for company. A very nice and varied park, now in good order.
