In your St Cuthbert's Way preparations remember that your navigation skill will be tested.

In your St Cuthbert's Way preparations remember that your navigation skill will be tested.

Britain is mapped with a precision not yet achieved by many countries anywhere else in the world. We offer both Ordnance Survey Landranger and Explorer maps as well as a special walker's route map from Harvey's to help keep you on course.

These are specially designed strip maps, covering the route. The route is marked in heavy red dots, and this, along with the large scale, facilitates route finding. The land for only a short distance on either side of the way is shown.

These maps are an acquired taste. Undoubtedly, they are clear and reduce painful decision-making. You may find they also take away some of your enjoyment of the landscape; you can't use them to give yourself the broader picture, lining up the hilltops around you, for example.

They do however, provide supplementary information to assist you in planning your walk as well as some safety information. The maps are multi-lingual with all text in English, French and German.

This map is only available in a waterproof edition which has a wax/silicon coasting. The maps fold well into the plastic case with which they are provided but they are not tear resistant.

 
 
 Ordnance Survey Landranger Maps
Scale 1:50,000; 2cm to 1km; 1 inches to 1 mile

Unlike the Harvey maps, if one of your enjoyments of savouring the countryside throughout your walk is examine the broader picture and to line up the hill tops in the surrounding area. Then these maps are for you.

 
These maps are available in three editions:

Paper - they fold well, and are backed with a reasonably durable laminated cover. They will remain intact, depending on how much wind and rain you have encountered!

Wilderness - laminated, tear resistant and waterproof they are designed for use in wind and rain and should arrive home with you as a permanent souvenir.

Lam-Fold - extra strong lamination with a 'china-graph' write-on, wipe-off surface they are also tear resistant and waterproof. They are however, a little bulkier than the 'wilderness' version.

 
 St-Cuthberts-Way Suggestions  
The Wilderness Edition maps are a good compromise between the paper maps that are likely to self-destruct in the wind, rain, sleet & snow and the heavier duty Lam-Fold Editions.

 Ordnance Survey Explorer Maps
Scale 1:25,000; 4cm to 1km; 2 inches to 1 mile

This scale provides detail for the really committed navigator and map enthusiast. Studying the county down to its every wall and ditch gives real confidence in route finding and satisfaction in "reading" the landscape. To follow the route at 1:25,000 you will need Explorer maps 338, OL16 and 340. These maps are available in three editions:

Paper - they fold well, and are backed with a reasonably durable laminated cover. They will remain intact, depending on how much wind and rain you have encountered!

Wilderness - laminated, tear resistant and waterproof they are designed for use in wind and rain and should arrive home with you as a permanent souvenir.

Lam-Fold - extra strong lamination with a 'china-graph' write-on, wipe-off surface they are also tear resistant and waterproof. They are however, a little bulkier than the 'wilderness' version.

 St-Cuthberts-Way Suggestions  
Use the Harvey map for route finding but take along either the OS Landranger 50,000 or Explorer 25,000 maps in the Wilderness edition as well for detailed navigation or to spread out while you're having a picnic or savouring a view.
