A new interactive map shows every campsite in Wales that you can travel to by train.

The map shows both campsites in orange that are a quick walk (less than 3 km), black a longer walk (3-10km), blue a day’s walk (10-20km away), and grey a longer trek (over 20km) from a train station.

Rail stations are marked in red. The campsites at different distances and the rail stations can also be toggled on and off by the map user.

The map was created by Will Petty from Hackney, London who said that he collected the data from Open Street Map.

In the current meteorological and political climate, however, perhaps any practical use of the maps will have to wait a few months – until the weather improves and train strikes are resolved.
