Thanks but the link doesn't work for purchasing the map.

If you know where I can source this please let me know.

If it's the Mellor Walks map you are after there were copies in Marple Bridge Post office/ stores a couple of days ago

@DLL I work in the imaging business and to me, that looks very much like a scan of an OS map with some modifications done by software to add the route of the march and point of interest along the way.

The source of the mapping doesn't look OS to me - the contours are weird, and have height colours, plus the colours and icons are wrong.  I've seen that mapping type before - can't place it though.  Presumably some small mapping company.

(For the benefit of the doubt, I am talking about the provider of the maps in the book ;) )

Thanks all

I could do with finding out where this map was sourced from :-

http://www.mellor-march.org.uk/assets/mellor-march-map.pdf

@DLL That's a copy of the Mellor Map that I provided a link to earlier!

I haven't been up Rowarth way for ages! Is the Little Mill pub still open?
It was the last time I was wandering up there (a couple of months ago)....

There is also the Mellor March route - the link below is to an older version of the walk, there has been the odd change.

For a quick fix the Oddfellows in Mellor suggests 3 walks which can be bolted together if you want longer.

It doesn't fully cover what you're looking for but the Mellor Map from Mellor Archaeological Trust could give you some great routes you could construct yourself:
