I have altered the spacing of the slope lines, which are now 20m apart, with grid squares shown at 1km size.
Roads as usual come from OpenStreetMap, with OS Vector Map foreshore, woodland, plus tidal and inland water (the labels of these are from OpenStreetMap - possibly a dangerous thing to do, if something is in OSM but not OS VectorMap there will be a labelled object that is not mapped!).
Hill peaks are from www.hill-bagging.co.uk, plotting all greater than 150m with more than 20m drop.
As before, the steepness of hills is indicated by the width of the slope lines, in this version, they are plotted with 10*((Slope_deg_Mean - 2.25) / 45.0) metres width, if the slope exceeds 2.25 degrees, and if not omitted.
That is no lines are plotted where the average slope of the segment is less than 1 in 20, and increase in width up to 19.5m as slope approaches 90 degrees. So a vertical cliff will be almost solid red.
They are plotted in the direction of the mean aspect of the segment. This is the real aspect, not the absolute distance from north.
It is possible that a segment facing north may for example have half of it at 1 degree east, and the other half at 359 degrees. Thus the average would be at 180 degrees. This doesn't matter because the lines have no arrows on them.
However if you have 3/4 of it facing 359 degrees, and 1/4 facing 1 degree, then it would produce spurious results, therefore slope direction may be dubious on north-facing slopes.
