noun, plural - man·kys.
- a map that loves the great outdoors.
The National Trust commissioned a Manky to retail in their site café and gift shop. It is also used as a giveaway in the new member packs.
Their Manky measures 395mm x 305mm, with a site map on the front and trail descriptions on the rear.
The National Trust South West commissioned a very handy Manky for their picturesque property at Lydford Gorge. They have had a problem with conventional paper leaflets and guide books at the site. The walk is steep in places. At certain points along the trail both hands are required for climbing.
Paper guide books tend to end up dog eared and bent. A soft cloth map that can be easily pushed in to your pocket is a logical alternative to paper.
A Lydford Gorge site map adorns the front side, with a vibrant spotter guide being found on the rear. The spotter guide covers the Flora and Fauna you may encounter on your walk.
