Yellow Publications have published a new map for the West Mendip Way. The strip map is concertina folded for ease of use, laminated, expanded to 1:16,000 scale from the OS maps and available from their website at £7.99. Two other trails have been given the same treatment, namely the Boudicca Way and the Coleridge Way long distance paths.
