No vegetating at the back! Pay attention to these guides and you'll learn what all those splodges and squiggles of colour mean on the map. Being savvy how the vegetation is mapped, when to ignore the detail and when to pay attention will help your fluency between controls.

Especially in places like the New Forest, where the myriad of colour used makes the map something of a mosaic.
