Viking, Forties, Dogger, Fisher, Sole. The Shipping Forecast is a much-loved staple of BBC Radio and a unique part of British culture. Carefully recited to a highly technical formula, the forecast is almost poetic, and many can recall each area in turn - but do you know where they are?
My original Shipping Forecast Map was drawn in 2014, and showed the BBC Radio 4 and Met Office Shipping Forecast regions, including their coordinates, and the coastal weather stations of the British Isles. In 2020, I enlarged, revised, and significantly expanded the map. New additions include the Inshore Waters, the Beaufort Scale, maritime signal flags, and many new decorations.
