Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller's journey is done.
(William Blake, Songs of Experience)

In this section you will find a selection of the excellent 1:25,000 scale Ordnance Survey maps (used with permission) of important locations seen in Watership Down. Although a few places have been omitted - unavoidably given the distance the rabbits travel - I believe that the most important places are covered.

These pages are rather more graphics-intensive than most of this site (not saying much!), as the maps are fairly large (400 pixels square), and the level of detail required militates against too much compression being used. In general, map pages come to around 100K in size.
