The maps are crafted from Ordnance Survey data and focus on the pattern of streets and buildings but also brings in the flowing curves of the river Itchen between St Cross and Bar End. Why don’t you give it a try?

Map colouring is a soothing and relaxing activity for both kids and adults, particularly on those rainy days. Alternatively, if you need to get away from the screen for a little while, colouring in provides a bit of low-tech relaxation.

You can paint your own picture on top of the map or give the map your very own style. Print out the map, rest your eyes on the sheet, pick some beautiful colours – colour pens/pencils or even water colours are great – and let your mind wander.

If you want to move beyond Winchester, Ordnance Survey publishes the Great British Colouring Map book * which contains 55 maps to be coloured in. There are also free A4 printouts available for a few cities including London, Southampton and, of all places, Milton Keynes. An additional blog post describes the relaxation aspects of adult map colouring.
