We’re a tightly-knit group of explorers who want to share our love of walking, cycling, and maps. Our goal is to give you the tools required to venture into the great outdoors and see this wondrous country for yourself. We’re here to provide you with top-quality maps, customer service, and an all-around honest approach. We also like giving back to the beautiful areas our maps are based in by sharing interesting and exciting local events.
The company was set up just a few years ago out of a passion for maps. Since then, we have developed the idea and based our maps on our perfect image of them. We know how important it is to have walks and routes to go on, so we combined the best bits of maps with the guidance of walking books.
Our maps are for the holidaymakers, the weekend visitors, the adventurous families, and the occasional walkers. They’re sold mainly at tourist information centres, hotels, campsites, and local traders - contributing to more than 100,000 maps printed every year.
As a licensed partner, we use Ordnance Survey mapping as the base and then scale up for the perfect balance between detail and portability. They’re a bit littler than the big serious hiking maps so that they can be taken wherever you go. You’ll also find they’re made of a nice water-resistant material that’s tougher than ordinary paper. Walking and cycling routes are a big thing to us, so we included them on many of the maps - all marked at a large scale with a description and difficulty level for the walk or ride. Some maps also include nature walks and information on the local wildlife.
Moving forward, we will continue to look for new ways to make our maps even more useful than they already are. The currently mapped areas start from our home base in Dorset and work along the South West. We’re now slowly expanding from the coast to the countryside and beyond. If you’ve been on even one or two trips around the country, you’ll know how spoilt we are for beautiful coastline and countryside. That’s why we make it our goal to uncover the top areas for exploring, such as those that feature an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a national park, or something unique.
