“Give me a map to look at, and I am content. Give me a map of country I know, and I am comforted: I live my travels over again; step by step, I recall the journeys I have made; half-forgotten incidents spring vividly to mind, and again I can suffer and rejoice at experiences which are once more made very real. Old maps are old friends, understood only by the man with whom they have traveled the miles.”
This Way is a map making project run by Emily Macaulay and Felicity Rowley. When we are not making maps we can usually be found outside exploring new places on foot, searching for the UK's more unusual tourist attractions.
We started This Way because we wanted to spend more of our time outdoors, and in sharing what we found we hoped to encourage others to head outdoors too. We discovered that we had frequently walked the same routes in a small corner of Sussex, and over the years had gathered a number of stories and things to look out for, this information became our first map, Brighton to Lewes.
We try to release a new map as frequently as we can. We also work with different companies to design custom maps for their projects, events and spaces.
