/ Yorkshire 3 Peaks
If so does anyone have that or the best map area available for sale which is in good condition. I'd prefer non laminated version.
If nobody has one for sale, what suites do OS maps for cheap?
www.dash4it.co.uk will probably be your best bet, if you use the discount code feb13 at checkout you will get an extra 5% off. I can't help with the rest of your question, sorry.
only 'tricky' bit is between penygent and whernside, the rest is straight forward path walking. You could do it with a few jotted down notes or print of the relevant bits from OS get a map. If you have an android phone then maverick is excellent.
excellent, thank you for the android idea etc.
Am I right in thinking the correct map is OL2?
My mate likes to have a full OS Map.
Yes, the whole route is on the West sheet of OL2.
The BMC/Harvey Dales map is best IMO.
A new section has been opened between Pen-y-ghent and Ribblehead, which probably isn't marked on either map yet. The new section actually existed already, but has now been "improved" (ie spoiled) by the manufacture of a new motorway.
tell me more about this knew section.
is there plenty of parking in Horton?
Is it where the race goes? If they've put flags down then I can't see you'd need a map for any of it now - that bit over Black Moss(?) was the only bit even slightly unclear.
Dont forget crisp bags, banana peels and sandwich packaging.
Its a veritable Blue Peter treasure trove.
surely it's not marked out all year?
and I won't be leaving any litter!
ts a good walk though. I would recommend doing it after a good freeze as the bit between PYG and WS can be a bit mushy.
Thought the race route and the "official" route differed between Pen y Gent and the Calf Holes area with the walkers route going over Black Moss and the race route going to the south of Hull Pot.

I know they're different - I've only done the race once and my feet got blistered so badly coming off PyG I wasn't paying much attention - it all seemed to be on good tracks.
I've never been sure if that isn't just the ascent of Whernside (which is certainly out of bounds apart from race day).
The formerly-out-of-bounds section on Whernside is on open access land.
Just downloaded - wow!
To OP - 3 Peaks is a doddle apart from Whernside to Pen-y-dent so as long as you have a map for that all shall be well.
I've guided plenty of groups around the walk, you'll love it.
