Relief Map G/SW Hereford

I am fortunate to live in Hereford City where I am in close proximity to a number of SOTA locations. It is good when work permits to communicate with activators local and visiting this beautiful part of the country. Some contacts are line of sight from my QTH including Black Mountain, Waun Fach and the Sugarloaf to name a few!
Visiting Hereford Library as I have done so for over 30 years I have often admired the relief model of the surrounding area and thought you may be interested. It is a remarkable display made possibly of papier mache or plaster encased in a glass case. It is located on the right hand side of the main entrance and if you are visiting you might like to see it. It certainly gives a unique overview and perspective of some of the peaks that many of the SOTA community have activated.

One of the climbing huts that I have used (there are so many that I cannot remember which one!) had a similar style map on the wall, but this one covered the Lake District.

This one is on sale in some outlets in the Lake District - perhaps it was this one, Brian:

There are several other relief maps available in the OS shop but quite pricey.

Yes, that’s the one - I remember wondering why they chopped off the northern outliers of the Skiddaw group!
