The A-Z Adventure series features the accuracy and quality of OS Explorer mapping in a convenient book, complete with index.
The A-Z Adventure series is an innovative concept that utilises Ordnance Survey Explorer mapping in a book, therefore eliminating the need to fold and re-fold a large sheet map to the desired area. OS Explorer is Ordnance Survey's most detailed mapping at a scale of 1:25 000, 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 easy to find the required location quickly. 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 a standard OS Explorer map when closed.
The South Downs Way is a National Trail along the chalk escarpments and ridges of the South Downs. This undulating path begins in Winchester and finishes in Eastbourne covering 160km (100 miles) and lies completely within the South Downs National Park. For ease of use A-Z have highlighted the Trail in yellow, so the route clearly stands out from the many other footpaths shown.
This A-Z Adventure Atlas of the South Downs Way features 44 pages of continuous Ordnance Survey mapping providing complete coverage of the South Downs Way. 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 or mountain biking and a selection of QR codes linked to useful websites.
This A-Z Adventure Atlas has the accuracy and quality of OS Explorer 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.
Other National Trails available within the A-Z Adventure series include: Coast to Coast, Cotswold Way, Pennine Way, Thames Path, The Ridgeway and SW Coast Path.
