Provenance & quality

This map was created by Eddy, A., Welch, D., & Rawes, M. in the early 1960s at the Nature Conservancy's Moor House Field Station (a forerunner of the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology). Note that the reserve has been extended to Upper Teesdale, however this map covers the Moor House area only. The original field survey was mapped on to a base map on the scale of 6 inches to the mile (1:10560). The paper map was digitised by the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology (now the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology) in the 1990s. See online Supporting Information for further details.
