The latest map in the award-winning British Mountain Map series covers the wild granite landscape of Dartmoor.

Dartmoor is the largest and wildest area of open country in southern England. Its varied landscape of open moorland, steep sided river valleys and ancient deciduous woodland provides great opportunities for walking. The granite tors for which the National Park is famous offer challenging routes and exciting bouldering.

Published by Harvey Maps in conjunction with the BMC, and designed especially for climbers and hill walkers, this new map covers the whole of Dartmoor on a single sheet at the 1:40,000 scale. It uses contour colour shading for easy identification of hills and valleys, and is printed on polyethylene to make it lightweight, tear-resistant and waterproof. The reverse side of the map contains mountain incident and first aid advice, navigation tips, useful visitor information, and geological information provided by the British Geological Survey.

“This inspiring new map will help walkers and climbers explore Dartmoor’s wild granite landscapes, and like the granite, the map is virtually indestructible!”
Sir Ranulph Fiennes
