AA 2 Central Lake District Walker’s Map
This map offers a very useful addition to the maps arsenal of any Lake District fell-walker, as the actual mapping is standard Ordnance Survey 1:25000 scale, and identical to that used on up-to-date, (i.e. at time of posting this review, 2016 editions), OS Explorer 1:25000 range.
Where it scores very highly, is that it covers the vast majority of the Lake District – from Buttermere Village in the west, to Windermere in the east, southern shores of Coniston Water in the south, and Bassenthwaite Village in the north, – all on the one map! (See attached image – It’s a double sided map, and the areas within the green lines on the image show its coverage).
For anyone walking extensively in “central” Lakeland, this is a real boon, as using Ordnance Survey’s own “Explorer” series, would necessitate using four separate maps to cover the same area. (This map is exactly the same size as an OS Explorer 1:25000 scale map, both when fully open and when folded).
