Obviously the main way you can help is by sponsoring me and/or offering a bed/bath for the night along the way. However, there are some other very specific things that would be helpful..

The main one at the moment  is lending me OS maps. I have Harvey strip maps to get me along the national trails but I don’t have any maps for the journey between them. My route passes briefly through lots of different maps making it prohibitively expensive to purchase them all. If you or anybody you know could lend me any of the maps below I would be incredibly grateful and would post them directly back to the owner after they have been used.

The maps I need and i dates i need them on are below. A more detailed version is available here which also shows which maps people have been able to offer me already (names have been reduced to abbreviations) and whether they have an older or newer version.

      That would be amazing, thanks! The easiest thing to do would be to post them to Peter nearer the time and he can then give them to me when I see him in June. Cool!
