The maps done by Ordinance Survey are brilliant maps, full of detail and full off information and last for ages. Especally the fully waterproof one's like this which helps keep dry especally if your like me and liable to drop it some where damp. The explorer maps are a nice scale for walking and you are able to pin point your position exactly with it's detail. As for the area it's really nice and beatuiful. Plenty of places to walk as you will find if you buy the map. Bare in mind this is central Hadrien's Wall not the full length of the wall. It would be nice to have a map of the full length but this is not with this map is for. There are more area's around this area than Hadrian's wall (Even thou it is great), try exploring the rest of the map it will be worth it. Enjoy yourself.

Wherever you are going, if you have the Landranger series map for the roads and the Explorer series map for walking, you have all the information you could need. Comprehensive, clear and uncluttered, with simple, easy to recognise symbols and appropriate key, and careful labelling that does not obscure important detail. Never go anywhere without the right Ordnance Survey map!

Best walking maps in the world ? This particular map when coupled with a map protection pouch and a compass is all I need to hit the countryside with complete confidence I have the tools to know where I am and what terrain I am facing. They could improve the product with tear off key to map symbols and perhaps a basic compass reading guide but .....

As I was planning to stay near Carlisle and walk only short sections of the wall this map was ideal. It is large scale and shows clearly the forts, museums and information centres making it easy to sort out the interesting places to visit. With contours and spot heights it also helps to decide which are the strenuous lengths of wall to avoid walking.

Not much to say about this. It does what is should. Scale is large, mapping is clear, everything is fit for purpose.

Used on a regular basis for work very important for what we do and they work better than a sat nav.

Exactly what I hoped it would be, a good sturdy, waterproof map. It covers the area I was visiting, arrived just in time as I'd made a last minute descision to purchase it and in excellent condition.

It is a bit of a swizz to call this map Hadrian's Wall. The small print tells you it covers part of the wall, and in reality you need to buy three maps to cover the entire route. The wall route is also right through the centre of the map, meaning some intricate folding and refolding is required during the trip. I am aggrieved at having to buy another two maps in order to walk the whole route and wish that OS would follow Harvey's example and produce the entire route on one sheet, albeit arranged in non traditional sections of mapping. Anyway, I shall get off my soap box now. OS still make the best and clearest maps to follow and for that I cannot fault the quality of the map, only the content.
