For some time I have been working on adding Ransome related locations to a Google Map. I have tried to locate places used by Ransome as sources for places in his book as well as places he had a connection with in his life, such as his birthplace and gravesite.

Where there are reportedly several places associated with one book location, I have added them all in, so Wild Cat Island has three locations, Peel Island in Coniston as well as Blakeholme and Ramp Holme in Windermere.

It is by no means complete and I will be pleased to add suggested locations, where these can be identified to my satisfaction. For example, Alan Hakim suggested some Ransome locations in Syria, associated with the Altounyans and his visit there.

I have not got any Swallowdale locations, though I am aware of several possible locations, I am not sure exactly where they are located. Other locations such as High Topps have never really been clear in my mind, so help would be appreciated.
