Sorry to be pedantic but should that be cartographer not geographer? I do have a certain love affair with maps that combines nicely with a love of archaeology and running. At work we have a 1:25,000 map on the wall, an old one with the old railway lines on. Well, lets say it keeps me amused at quiet times!

Fair point - but it brings the geographer out in me (maps/topography/social geography/meteorology/statistics) (!!)

Ivor - I have recently procured the OL1 Ordnance Survey map and am looking for a case/carrier (not sure what the correct term is). What would you recommend ? Ta

Ivor,

I find new fell races to run just so I can spends hours looking at the route on my map

I know this is wise after the event but the OL series can be bought in a plastic coated form; more expensive but the best way to protect a map. Otherwise just go to any outdoor shop and buy a case. I have never bought one that lasts long, so I get cheap ones and expect to replace them! It is a shame that copy-right rules do not allow you to copy the bit of the map you want (on a scanner) and then plastic coat it with a home laminator; it would work a treat.... shame
