Paper maps may be purchased via this website or from the map shop in Upton on Severn. They are convenient to use, but in some cases will be less up-to-date than the on-line resources.

Our area of interest is covered by map sheets 181 (Ludlow) 198 (Hereford) and 197 (Hay-on-Wye), but also in the area of 180 (Knighton) which is not published. There is an in-depth report (memoir) for sheet 198 and a brief report for sheet 197.
