About us


We were members of the Gloucestershire Mountaineering Club for many years and on one of our backpacking trips in Switzerland  we completed  the high level route around Grindelwald.  In the local Tourist  Information Office we came across Heinrich Berann's amazing pictorial maps.These maps depict the ski runs in winter on one side and  waymarked walks in summer on the other, what a brilliant idea!


Realising that no one had yet produced this type of map of the National Parks  in the UK, we utilised our illustrating skills to produce the artwork for our first A2 size Aerial Panoramic map depicting North Snowdonia, rapidly  followed by South Snowdonia,The Lake District and The Yorkshire Dales.  These proved very popular so we carried on with other areas of Wales, Scotland and England,  these are all illustrated on this website. We also publish 20 Walking Route maps, size A4, which are derived from the A2 size maps but additionally show the most important walking routes.


We have undertaken several large commissions including  more than 80 pictorial aerial maps for Oz Clarke's  World Wine Atlas, published by Websters, showing the most important vineyards in their environment around the world. We have  also  produced pictorial aerial maps for the TV series  'Disappearing Worlds'.


We hope you found this of interest,    Keith Gage and Sue Gage
