 From about 1972, OS started publishing "OUTDOOR LEISURE" maps at 1:25000 to cover Tourist Areas

18 maps of Cover 1 - bird paintings by Harry Titcombe were published.

The success of these maps led to publication of 45 OUTDOOR LEISURE maps with Cover 2, mainly based on National Parks. 

The series has developed through covers 3 and 4 to cover National Parks and provide other local maps at this scale as "The essential map for outdoor activities"
