Dorset Underground MapFriday, December 18th, 2015
A map showing Dorset in the same format as the London tube map has been created. The Dorset underground map was created by Charlie Slade, who is Dorset born and bred but now lives in London.
One evening, during a particularly slow journey home on the Victoria line I wondered how big the Underground was, and therefore how big Greater London was. I couldn’t picture in my head the sort of an area it covered. I needed a familiar comparison to be able to visualise it.
This led me to do a bit of tinkering on Google Earth, overlaying London and Dorset. The result was the observation that the true scale of the London Underground would fit nicely inside the county boundaries.
So if you need to know how to travel between Dorchester and Lytchett Matravers or find out the quickest route between Shaftesbury and Ryme Intrinseca on a hypothetical transport network you’ll need a copy of this.
