Free Range Maps
The Map Shop, in Upton-upon-Severn, is a beautifully run business. In abundance they possess the two most integral assets for a potential map buyer - maps, of course, and a homely environment more homely than one's home.
Belgium's 1:50 000 topographic maps are unusually illusive; there are said to be no more than 20 remaining in the wild. It, therefore, came as a surprise when we stumbled across the 12 that we needed, all filed neatly away in a box. It will be nothing shy of lovely to get these captive maps out into the wild. On a more selfish note, I have heard that free range maps divulge more.
