Hello! We are a small family run business that are based in St Austell, Cornwall.
We started out as the famous Holidaymaker, providing both Cornwall and Devon with Tide Timetables to keep them safe in the surf. After undergoing a brand revamp and change in colour scheme we re-emerged as Yellow Publications, partnered with Ordnance Survey. Alongside the continued production of the iconic and very popular Tide Times we started producing local area walking and cycling maps based on the orange Explorer data.
Instead of using the 1:25 000 scale we blew it up to a more readable, easier to use scale of 1:16 000. Our standard product the Around and About map comes out just a little larger than A3, so very manageable when you’re out in the field.
We also produce ZigZag long distance maps for more serious walkers, Yellow Map atlases (which if you do a lot of walking or cycling in your county are a bargain) and Boxed Sets (of the Three Peaks for example).
