Glorious adventures do await if you take the advice of the very sensible and reliable Ordnance Survey! They have produced a new and exciting kind of map that doesn’t fit the normal mould of their Explorer or Landranger maps. This one is an Adventure map and gives a fitting warning on the cover: ‘Warning! This map may cause an uncontrollable urge to Get Outside.’

I have had great fun exploring this map and have enjoyed this almost as much as doing the activities it suggests! It’s full of fun, quirky and sensible activities that you can do within our beautiful British Isles. It has suggestions for serious ‘Lycra-clad adventurers’ as well as ‘fancy-dress fundraisers’ and everyone in between. There are serious facts that will help you plan your adventure such as travel information, and there’s an equal amount of fun facts to keep you entertained such as when you might go and see the Dorset Knob throwing competition!

There is space on the map to write your own notes – maybe for planning or for recording the fun you had – and plenty of useful detail despite the large scale.

You can purchase it from OS online  … go on, you won’t regret it!
