Bournemouth Coast Path included on OS map

The new edition of the Ordnance Survey Explorer map for Bournemouth includes the Bournemouth Coast Path.

The New Forest: Southampton, Ringwood, Ferndown, Lymington, Christchurch & Bournemouth Explorer map OL22 2013 edition is published this month.

This is a major step forward for the Bournemouth Coast Path created in 1985 to link the Dorset Coast Path at Sandbanks with the Solent Way at Milford-on-Sea. Since then the Mudeford to Chewton Bunny path has been designated as the ‘Christchurch Coastal Path’.

The Bournmeouth Coast Path runs from the borough boundary with Poole at Branksome Dene Chine to the Mudeford Spit but the guide will continue to overlap on each side giving the route from Swanage to Lymington.

The latest edition of the New Forest Explorer OL22 (£7.99) will be available in shops shortly as the stocks the old edition are replaced.

Meanwhile copies are available direct from Ordnance Survey.
