THE first Ordnance Survey maps showing new access land in Yorkshire and the North West have gone on sale.
Areas of countryside previously off-limits to ramblers were opened up on Sunday under new access laws.
The maps have been published in a bid to avoid any confusion and misunderstandings between walkers, landowners and farmers.
The updated OS Explorer Maps show the extent of the areas where people will be allowed to walk for the first time on land away from public footpaths.
The Peak District and all or large parts of West Yorkshire, Lancashire, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Derbyshire and smaller parts of Cumbria, North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and Staffordshire are now open.
Vanessa Lawrence, OS director general, said: "We are delighted to be supporting the implementation of the new access opportunities in a very practical way, by carrying out major revisions to every OS Explorer Map in England and Wales."
