We have teamed up with The Cartographic Arts to give you the chance to win a beautiful map of the Cotswolds

One of the celebration events planned to mark the 50th anniversary of the Cotswold Way was set to be held in Chipping Campden in May, but due to coronavirus, it has been postponed. An exciting element of the event which can still take place though, is the opportunity for people to win a limited edition, vintage style map of the Cotswolds – produced by The Cartographic Arts.

Daniel Robinson, Director of The Cartographic Arts, has been a member of the Cotswolds Conservation Board’s Caring for the Cotswolds scheme since launching his other business, Cotswold Discovery Trail. It was developing the discovery trails that prompted Daniel to design a map of the Cotswolds and launch The Cartographic Arts. He explains, “while criss-crossing the Cotswolds determining the routes and questions for the discovery trails, I wanted to buy a decorative map of the Cotswolds to hang on my wall at home. I couldn’t find one anywhere, so I decided to design one myself.”

The design of the maps is inspired by antique cartographic styles, mixed with contemporary elements – creating a vintage look but with up-to-date cartographic information. Daniel’s maps also include a researched section highlighting ‘Sites of Significant Historical and Cultural Interest’. The beautiful maps provide inspiration to explore the area.

Andy Parsons, Chief Executive of the Cotswolds Conservation Board said “We’re really delighted Daniel is able to contribute two of his maps to help us fundraise for the next 50 years of looking after the Cotswold Way. We’re aiming to raise £50,000, so every contribution will help us take care of the trail into the future.”

With the auction of a map in May now postponed, one map will be held back for when life returns to normal; and The Cartographic Arts is still offering readers of Cotswold Life the opportunity to win a second copy in this month’s issue.
