Novelty maps up for grabs in competition
Bookmark and Share
Five copies of a new novelty Lake District map will be won in a new competition by outdoors website Grough.

It is offering readers the chance to get their hands on a copy of the Tubular Lakes map, designed by London-based geography teacher Peter Burgess.

The map mimics the style of the London Underground map but features the Wainwrights - the fells written about by late author Alfred Wainwright, who like Mr Burgess originally came from Blackburn.

People walking the fells will, however, need proper Ordnance Survey maps to help them navigate.

Wainwright wrote seven pictorial guides to the fells in the 1950s and 1960s and each had its own colour, which has been reproduced in the style of a 'line' in the new map.

To enter the prize draw, contestants must guess how many Wainwrights there are - 89, 214 or 283.

Scafell pike is the highest of the Wainwrights at 3,210 ft, followed by neighbour Scafell at 3,164 ft.
