The A-Z Adventure series features the accuracy and quality of OS 1:25000 mapping in a convenient book, complete with index.
An innovative concept, the A-Z Adventure series utilises Ordnance Survey 1:25000 mapping in a book, therefore eliminating the need to fold and re-fold a large sheet map to the desired area. OS 1:25000 is Ordnance Survey's most detailed mapping, 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 the standard folded OS map.
