Beautifully illustrated map of the local area
Castlerigg Hall is a beautiful camping and caravan site in an elevated position just outside Keswick in the Lake District, with great views of Derwentwater & Bassenthwaite Lakes.
The owner of the site had approached Lovell Johns’ stand at the Holiday Park Show 2016 with an interest in developing a custom illustrated map for the 2017 season which would highlight local beauty spots and encourage campsite visitors to explore the area.
To help the owner choose his preferred style of mapping, our map making team were able to show a wide range of previous illustrated maps for similar clients such as Private Estates, Parks and Town Centres.
The detailed illustrated map was produced from open data, with additions of particular paths and trails as advised by the client. Local points of interest were highlighted and some were illustrated with detailed 3D icons.
The map reflects the open nature of the surrounding countryside, with watercolour tones of green and brown to indicate height and the general terrain. An initial sketch was approved by the client before work commenced on the full watercolour illustrated map.
The maps were required for the opening of the site for the summer season and were delivered to schedule. The images will be used in the site’s new website and information booklet. The client was happy with the illustrated map and described it as ‘fabulous’.
