MApping for Harford Bridge Holiday Park

Harford Bridge Holiday ParkHarford Bridge cycle hub map  – an award winning 4-star holiday park offering Dartmoor holidays by the river Tavy – commissioned Graphic Words to produce large map display panels to be mounted in their Visitor Information Room and Cycle Hub.

Graphic Words sourced licensed copies of OS maps covering an area within a 15-mile radius of the Holiday Park. We then identified visitor attractions, ancient and historic sites and walking and cycling routes located within the area.

Harford Bridge wished for the attractions to be easily located on the map, and requested a grid system be overlayed on the OS base map, with each attraction identified on separate key panels mounted on either side of the main map. The key panels also show photographs of a selection of the places identified.

The panels were printed and mounted on aluminium composite board, at two sizes, one set being 1400mm tall, the second at a slightly smaller size.

For another example of large-format mapping, see our maps created for Langstone Manor Park.
