Win a signed map in our map symbol quiz

photoWe have two limited edition OS Explorer Maps up for grabs in our map symbol competition.  Ben Fogle signed OS Explorer Map 455 of Taransay and Simon King signed OS Explorer Map 470 of Shetland – Unst, Yell & Fetlar. The maps were created as limited editions at a previous Outdoors Show and on the reverse of the map covers, Simon and Ben explain why they chose the areas for their limited edition maps. To be in with a chance of winning one of the signed maps, simply identify the six map symbols in our quiz and send us your answers on the blog by 5.00 pm on Friday 22 November.

If the quiz reminds you that your map reading skills aren’t quite up to scratch, you might find our series of videos filmed with the Wildlife Whisperer, Simon King, of use. Competition terms and conditions
