About Ordnance Survey’s Landranger series covering Britain at 1:50,000:

The maps provide plenty of recreational and tourist information, indicating the traditional public right of way paths (except in Scotland where different laws apply), including bridleways and byways restricted or open to motorized traffic. National Trails and selected other long-distance paths are marked, as well as on-road and traffic-free cycle routes with their National/Regional Cycle Network numbers.

National Trust/National Trust for Scotland and Forestry Commission land is clearly marked, indicating open or restricted access. A range of symbols highlights camping and caravanning sites, youth hostels, tourist information offices and visitors’ centres, parking and picnicking places, World Heritage sites, sport and recreational facilities, etc.

The maps provide detailed presentation of the country’s topography with contours at 10m intervals, numerous spot heights and additional colouring and/or graphics for different types of woodlands, orchards or parkland; rock features including scree and cliffs; water features inland and along the sea shore with marshland, dunes, sand, mud, shingle and the high water mark. All the standard information expected of survey mapping at this scale is included: finely graded road network, railway lines with stations, cuttings, embankments, etc; individual isolated buildings; archaeological and historical sites, etc.

For GPS users the British National Grid is shown at 1km intervals, with latitude and longitude given by margin ticks at 1' and cross hairs on the map at 5'. Each map covers an area of 40 x 40km, (approx. 25 x 25 miles).

German and French translations are provided in the main parts of the map legend: the representation of the road network and the symbols for tourist information. Other features are identified in English only.
