Made in Britain
can be personalised
To create this unique, personalised, artwork a bespoke section of an Ordnance Survey map has been printed onto a square of reclaimed or sustainable timber.
The map can be centered on any location in England, Scotland and Wales. You could choose the location of a holiday, honeymoon or wedding, or where you live. It is a perfect present to remember a special place. A very thoughtful and truly unique gift.
The transfer print technique I use works best with black and white images, giving the items a gorgeous timeless look. There are 4 types of wood to choose from: Pine, Reclaimed Pine, Oak or BirchPly. All the wood I use is from sustainable sources - choose your favourite via the options menu when ordering.
Whichever wood is selected knots and wood grain show through the printed image to enhance the beauty of the map. The natural variations of colour, pattern and grain add to the character of the handmade nature of the item, making each map a truly unique ‘one off’.
Once you have decided on a location for your map simply enter the details in the Location box to place the order. Each map varies but as a general rule the maps cover an area of 1.5 miles x 1.5 miles so please bear this in mind when specifying the location.
Once I have accepted your order, if you have opted to see a preview, I will send a jpeg of your map for your approval via your order on NotOnTheHighStreet. (If you have not received an email of your proof within 24 hours of placing an order please check your email spam folder or log into your account on the notonthehighstreet.com website, go to the 'my orders' section and then click the 'order enquiry' button on the relevant order. The jpg will appear at the top of the discussion page as a link which will open when you click on it.)

This item is small enough to stand on a shelf or mantlepiece but can also be hung on the wall. It is supplied with a concealed hanger for easy hanging from a picture pin or nail. I also offer this item framed in a simple white wood profile. You may prefer this as it gives the artwork a more contemporary style. Simply select Framing via the options menu when placing your order.
