The A-Z Adventure series features the accuracy and quality of the OS 1:25000 mapping in a convenient book, complete with index.
The A-Z Adventure series is an innovative concept that utilises Ordnance Survey 1:25000 mapping in a book, therefore eliminating the need to fold and re-fold a large sheet map to the desired area. OS 1:25000 is Ordnance Survey's most detailed mapping, showing public rights of way, open access land, national parks, tourist information, car parks, public houses and camping and caravan sites.
Unlike the original OS sheets, this A-Z Adventure Atlas includes a comprehensive index to towns, villages, hamlets and locations, natural features, nature reserves, car parks and youth hostels, making it quick and easy to use. Each index entry has a page reference and a six figure National Grid Reference. At a book size of 240mm x 134mm it is the same size as the standard folded OS map.
The Ridgeway is a National Trail which covers 139km (87 miles) following, in part, an ancient path along the exposed Chiltern Hills escarpment. Starting at Overton Hill near Avebury, The Ridgeway travels northeast, passing near many Neolithic, Iron Age and Bronze Age sites to finish at Ivinghoe Beacon near Tring, Buckinghamshire.
This A-Z Adventure Atlas of The Ridgeway features 36 pages of continuous Ordnance Survey mapping providing complete coverage of The Ridgeway Path. This atlas includes a route planner providing the distances between places and the amenities available, featuring:
- Information Centres
- Youth Hostels
- Campsites (seasonal opening)
- Public Houses
- Cafes (seasonal opening)
- Petrol Stations
Also featured is advice on safety and security when walking, details of Tourist Information Centres and a selection of QR codes linked to useful websites.
This A-Z Adventure Atlas has the accuracy and quality of OS 1:25000 mapping indexed within a book, making it the perfect companion for walkers, off-road cyclists, horse riders and anyone wishing to explore the great outdoors.
