New Midlothian Map
Posted by chdot on July 30, 2009
The Lothian Cycle Campaign, Spokes, has just published its latest map – a brand new one for Midlothian.
This is first update for seven years. One addition is the recently opened Dalkeith Bypass which slices through Dalkeith Park.
Unfortunately Spokes has also had to add a short section of “proposed cycle link” – from Millerhill to the new road (because Midlothian Council didn’t think about cyclists enough when they were planning the new road).
The map covers all of Midlothian (apart from the extreme southern tip around Soutra). In addition the southern and eastern extremes of Edinburgh are included – plus East Lothian as far as Prestonpans, Pencaitland and Humbie.
The other side of the map has enlarged, detailed, maps of Bilston, Dalkeith, Danderhall, Gorebridge, Lasswade, Loanhead, Mayfield, Newtongrange, Penicuik, Rosewell and Roslin.
PLUS photos and descriptions of some of the many “Places of Interest” in the ‘county of Midlothian’ – which historically included Edinburgh.
In short the map is a must for residents of Midlothian (including Edinburgh) to help you plan commuter or leisure journeys.
Available now in most bike shops and good book shops and on-line (£5.95 post free – or any 4 Spokes maps for the price of 3).
