Hey, so I'm also working on my own version of this map, and does anybody, by any chance, know the full names of the following provinces:

Bre
Bra
Kie
Dal
Mid
Mar
Spe
Sli
Shl
Ard
and pretty much any sea province?

Hi Nimble,

When I saw the map I also went thruogh and tried to identify the regions without reference to a map or the internet so these are just suggestions;

Bre Braemar
Bra Or perhaps this is Braemar
Kie ?
Dal ?
Mid Mid Wales
Mar Marlborough
Spe ?
Sli Sligo
Shl ?
Ard Ardentinny

My attempt at the Seas are;

Eng English Channel
Tha Thames Estuary
Hum Humber
Tyn Tyne, Tyneside, or Tyne estuary
Nth North Sea
For The Firth of Forth
Mor The Moray Firth
Min Minister
Foy Foy
Nao North Atlantic Ocean
Ern ?
Sha Shannon Estuary
Mao Mid Atlantic Ocean
Cel Celtic Sea
Sev Severn Estuary
Sgc 'something' Channel, maybe South Glamorgan?
Boy Something to do with the Boyne
Rib ?
Nch North Channel

It would be interesting if you or someone could post a complete correct list.

I can't find a list of names, sorry.

SGC is St George's Channel.
Dal might be Dales, although the area on the map is clearly Lancashire.
Mid is Mid-Glamorgan, not Mid Wales, but that doesn't make too much difference.

I think you'd be better off coming up with new names for the provinces.

Thank you all, with some fiddling about and a few completely improvised names I've been able to piece my map together. For those interested, it can be found here

I can't access that, it says it's a private photo. Could you post a map on here please?

Edited, does this work? I thought posting it here would clog up the thread.

It works now, and looks really good.
Do you hear the people sing,
Lost in the valley of the night,
It is the music of a people,
Who are climbing to the light,

For the wretched of the earth,
There is a flame that never dies,
Even the darkest night must end,
And the sun will rise
