I live in Surrey and spend a lot of my time criss-crossing the south-east, so an 'all in one' map of this region down to street-level seemed like a godsend. I don't have GPS in my car and I liked the idea of a 'hardcopy' atlas.

First impressions - this book is big and heavy ! It's standard A4 in size, just under 2.2kg in weight and 4.3cm deep. Imagine a mid-sized Yellow Pages and you get the idea in terms of bulk.

I can just about squeeze it in my car door pocket but I don't fancy carrying it around for too many long walks !!!

On to the content. It covers an impressive area of the South East - including London, most of the home counties and goes as far out as Southampton (SW), Oxford (NW), Ipswich (NE) and of course all of Kent (SE).

At the start of the atlas there is a 2 page 'routeplanner' which doubles as a key to map pages. Actually the fact that this 'routeplanner' is only 2 pages is my major gripe about this atlas and hence giving it a 4 star-rating rather than 5 (more on this later).

After the routeplanner and key to map symbols there are 132 pages of 'enlarged map pages', mostly town and city centres at 6.3 inches to 1 mile. These are excellent and cover most of the major centres in the South East. The main section of the atlas is 775 pages at 2.5 inches to the mile - which is very readable. The maps themselves are very clear and well annotated, with useful information such as one-way streets, Parking, Places of interest and AA inspected hotels.

The mapping section is completed by a 1-page 'M25 orbital motorway' and 'London Transport connections' map, both of which are useful.

The index is very comprehensive and has separate listings for Towns & Villages, streets and featured places.

I have owned several of the pocket-sized variety of the A-Z type of London street guides since the early 70s and published by a variety of different organisations. With the older ones without colour, some streets were impossible to locate even within the individual squares. The labelling was not always great and some smaller roads obscured either by their own names or those of others. This does not share those problems; double the page size, colourised and more clearly labelled, better and more comprehensive indexing and by no means least, a much higher scale of mapping so that a smaller area is displayed per page and there are therefore rather pages, hence its sheer bulk! I also believe that it was based upon aerial rather than terrestrial mapping, so may be just that little more accurate.

This also has the advantage of covering rather more than just London. but extends in all directions to cover most of the Home Counties. In addition to the main maps, it also has individual maps of the major towns and cities within its area with some of the 'buildings of interest' marked.

Even though I was then just beginning to use SatNav, there were times that I needed to know the precise location of a road and SatNav would not always take you to the door. This was the solution. A4 in size and the thickness and weight of 3 or 4 of today's telephone directories, it cannot be said to be portable or pocketable. It will not fit into most glove compartments or in the door storage areas of most cars. Still commonly seen on the sills of many delivery vehicles, it must be of some value.

Although now several years out of date, I still use it occasionally although I tend not to keep it in the car.

I particularly like the colouring of these maps, much nicer than the A-Z. Comprehensive coverage of all streets in a huge area. I'll be keeping this in my car!

Note that there are some ommisions, particularly as some maps have the congestion charging area boundary shaded whilst the adjacent map has it missing - obviously an editorial oversight that will hopefully be fixed in future editions.
