The British Mountain Map series are a lightweight, waterproof, durable set of maps covering some of the most popular and challenging areas in the UK at 1:40,000. These are ideal for climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers who want a detailed map of technical terrain suited to accurate navigation where it's needed most.
Harvey Maps says:
"The best Lake District map I have ever seen. The 1:40,000 scale provides clear, detailed information to one of the most popular hill walking areas in Britain." Sir Chris Bonington, mountaineer.

Harvey's British Mountain Map - Lake District is perfect for anyone wanting a practical and durable map to cover large areas of some of the most demanding ground in the UK. The Harvey Maps use light, waterproof paper so they are much easier to use and store than traditional paper or laminated maps. I moved over to Harvey Maps a few years ago and love using them for the weight, slim profile and waterproof nature as they are much more practical to use out on the hill. The British Mountain Map series are ideal for climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers who want a detailed map of technical terrain showing more features for safe, accurate navigation.
The range of information on the other side of the map is fantastic. From detailed diagrams of crags for climbers, geological mapping and history provided by the British Geological Survey through to tips and advice on staying safe in the mountains and basic navigation techniques and more. I prefer the Harvey Maps to OS Maps now as I prefer the layout and level of detail on more technical terrain even on the 1:40,000.
