Harvey

As an alternative to the Ordnance Survey you could look at Harvey's range of maps. Harvey maps are specifically designed for walkers and are made of polyethylene, not paper. These maps are tough, durable and 100% waterproof. They are also compact - not the great bulky package you get with a laminated map - and light to carry.

Buy Harvey Lake District British Mountain Map from Amazon
Harvey's Lake District British Mountain Map covers the centre of Lakeland at a scale of 1:40K and is published in co-operation with the British Mountaineering Council.

On the reverse of the map there are extra segments at 1:40K covering Ennerdale and Great Calva and detailed 1:15K enlargements of Scafell and Pillar, along with geological maps of Lakeland.

Coverage of all the 1:40K areas is shown on our map in blue.

Harvey's Superwalker

Harvey also do a range of four 1:25K Superwalker XT maps covering Lakeland:

Harvey's Ultramap

If you want something smaller and more easily pocketable then Harvey do a second range of four 1:40K Ultramaps covering the same areas:
