      Can you find the lay of the land including hills etc inside the m50 anywhere ?

      a discovery series map from the Ordnance Survey will give you contours at 5 or 10 metre intervals.

      And all 1:1000 town maps have spot heights and benchmarks on them. Probably the 1:2500 series too, but I couldn’t be sure.

      You might have to join the dots yourself, though!

      another option is to go on to google earth, turn on terrain and then look at it from a low angle.

      You could use
      Earthtools
      Make sure to click on contour map.

      Flood maps is worth a look too – but that is designed specifically for illustrating the effect of sea rise (actually don’t look at that – unless you live in the hills you’ll get upset. docklands anyone?)

      If you only need to check a few specific points you could use a route planner that uses height info – try mapitpronto

      How accurate do you need – there’s very detailed info available but it’s licensed. Used for (mobile phone) network planning, surveying etc…

      An interesting curiosity – if you have the opportunity – is the former remains of the former St Mary’s Abbey behind Capel Street. A remaining chapter house building was been incorporated into a Georgian builidng but remains very well preserved and its well worth a look. An interesting feature is that its about 2m below ground level from the entrance on Meetinghouse Lane. The guide noted that this is because the actual ground level of the city has risen by 2m since the abbey was founded and built in the middle ages.

      thanks !! I was looking for something pretty accurate like the rise and fall of land level to the nearest square meter ( like those spot heights on the ordance survey maps)
