Canal Map[edit]

I don't know how to edit the canal map. The A270 needs to be corrected, it should be A720. Renata (talk) 19:18, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

The canal map is located under Template:Union Canal Scotland map. I have corrected the road. For more on these maps see WP:RDT. Simply south (talk) 19:32, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

The schematic is good and a small scale geometric map would also be helpful. Is any existing map suitable? ... PeterEasthope (talk) 16:26, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

I'll do one shortly.Afterbrunel (talk) 10:46, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

When did it open?[edit]

The article doesn't tell us; it only says it "was being built" [do you "build" a canal?] between certain dates. Does that mean it opened in one go at the final date, or what? Can we have a date ratehr than just a year?Afterbrunel (talk) 10:46, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Needs more verifiable content[edit]

I've added the map. There were a lot of problems with the text, for example there was a section that the Millennium Wheel project "will" be carried out, as well as a description of it.

There is still a need for a lot more verifiable encyclopaedic content for the modern usage section -- this is outside my capability. Afterbrunel (talk) 20:09, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Headland Archaeology barge excavation[edit]

"the south bank of the Union Canal" - but where? Any encyclopaedia would normally give the location for this find. Can anyone supply it? Kim Traynor (talk) 00:01, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
