Think my best option is to buy a Harveys 1:40,000 map and see how it is (or maybe find a shop where I can see one - any recommendations as to Stockists?!)?


Outside in Hathersage have them. As do at least some Cotswolds.

They also do a 1:25k versions covering the same area.  I've often found that they're better than OS maps for tracks on the ground, and sometimes also fences.

And a difference between a maintained and a derelict wall is often very useful.

You could also visit the Harvey Maps website and download their pdf catalogue which contains decent sized examples of their mapping at different scales along with a list all the products available.

The on-line BMC shop also has good prices if you are a BMC member, but a restricted offering. The Dash4It website is offering a 20% discount on all Harvey Maps.

It also appears that if you download the free Avenza Maps app you can then download a couple of free samples of Harvey mapping of the West Highland Way and the North Downs Way to have a look at the cartography.
