SKELETON CREEK & THE  CHEETHAM WETLANDS CIRCUIT
Skeleton Creek and Cheetham wetlands
Designing a map of a river system creates a problem, as watercourses are essentially a linear elements and conventional maps are seen in a rectangular space. So I split the map in two sections to illustrate this part of the creek as it winds a path through a suburban landscape and then fans out to its estuary and finally to the sea. I have also incorporated some of the previous history of the area, as the site of the historic Cheetham saltworks, and how the present is always built on the past.
