Cave Map overlaid on Google Earth

Blackheath Caverns map overlaid on Google Earth
UPDATE: Several people pointed out that the map was oriented wrongly. I think I’ve corrected it now, but please feel free to correct it yourself (.kmz file), and send me a more accurate version! Incorrect version was here.

Here’s the map of the Blackheath Cavern from 1946 (mentioned in the previous post) overlaid onto Google Earth. I couldn’t work out how to get it into Google Maps unfortunately. Zoomed out version below (old map is in the top left corner, village is at the bottom).

    I think you have overlaid the plan on the wrong curve in the road – the north point is pointing east. (Also true position was shown to a few of us on Anthony Durham’s underground Greenwich walk last year.)

    Meanwhile, interesting subterranean happenings on other parts of the Heath . Last week’s mains burst in Goffer’s Road left a gaping subsidence pit off Duke Humphrey Road. No prob, I thought, just a bit of infill. But the diggers look as though they are aiming for Australia after dropping in some huge circular liners. Who knows when other holes could appear?
