Improved version of Cornwall maps in Cornish

As I said in my previous post, there were some areas such as river estuaries showing land where which is actually water. 

Using layers from (ultimately from OpenStreetMap) I add inland water, rivers, woodland and parks (semitransparent overplot). 

Using data dependent properties in QGIS, vary plotting of label text dependent on type (e.g. town, village) as specific in the placename layer.

edit: The Cornish placenames themselves are the list in the Standard Written Form produced by the MAGA Signage Panel.

Scale of 1:200000 for the below pages printed at A4.

Some manual editing was necessary to ensure the Cornwall/Devon border conforms to the treaty of 936 between kings Athelstan and Huwel.
