The A-Z Adventure series features the accuracy and quality of the 25k 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 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 a standard OS Explorer map when closed.
The Pennine Way is a National Trail which runs along The Pennines and links the Peak District National Park with the Cheviot Hills. Starting in Edale, Derbyshire, the walk covers 431km (268 miles) and passes through the Yorkshire Dales, over Hadrian's Wall and through the Northumberland National Park to finish in Kirk Yetholm, just inside the Scottish Borders. Due to its length, this National Trail has been split into two atlases: A-Z Adventure Atlas Pennine Way (North) and A-Z Adventure Atlas Pennine Way (South), together these atlases cover the entire Pennine Way.
This A-Z Adventure Atlas of the Pennine Way (North) features the northern half of the Pennine Way, covering the route from Kirk Yetholm, in the Scottish Borders, to Bowes in the North Pennines, 212km (132 miles) of the total route. This Atlas features 50 pages of continuous Ordnance Survey mapping providing coverage of the northern section of the Pennine Way. This atlas includes a route planner providing the distances between places and the amenities available, featuring:
- Information Centres
