Did the earth move for you?

It's the 1st of August and the layout of the north of England has gone barmy. The LDNP extended within Cumbria - I can just about understand that. But the YDNP extended into Cumbria and Lancashire? How does that work?

LDNP

YDNP

So, now there are even more bits of the LDNP that are not merely unmarked but simply don't appear on my worn-in but not yet worn-out OS OL English Lakes paper set, or my Memory-Map 1:25k Lake District 'puter maps, or even my two excellent AZ Adventure Lake District map-books.

How long before the OS tries to sell us Outdoor Leisure OL "7 and a bit"?

 

And before you say anything about the UMapper maps on this blog, yes, I know that they're fcuked. UMapper is defunct, and I have yet to find a suitable replacement.

    Thanks for that, Alan. The Archers is SWMBO's specialist subject, she loves it.

    My Yorkshire wife is very pleased that Yorkshire is nibbling bits of Lancashire. It's revenge for hundreds of years of injustice. Don't even start on Leicester kidnapping King Richard (of York).

    @Glen Rayner - Kidnapping??? We thought it was an epic game of Hide & Seek.

    Have you any idea how much the House of York owes in car-park over-stay charges? According to some sources, it's a King's Ransom 🙂
