Reference Map

The Official ECA Map

Below is the Official English Castles Awards (ECA) map of references. We would like to thank Nick 2E0NAQ for all his help and hard work assisting us in getting this done.

The ECA map is an on going project the same as the ECA reference list. References will get added or replaced over time, meaning the map is subject to change and/or update when necessary. For activators using the “default” map view will allow the user to see if they are located on a National Park or AONB to assist with multi reference activations involving other awards programs.

For questions, queries and corrections please contact our map manager Nick Barnard,2E0NAQ via email
