  1. This was a really well received birthday present for my husband. Thank you. Superb quality. I can see we may be starting a collection!

  2. Thank you for my delightful map box for my retirement from Ironbridge walking festival committee received today via NC. So delighted with this surprise and will be well used. Thank you for such workmanship

  3. The mapbox is beautifully made. My husband will be delighted when he receives it on Christmas Day. Service was excellent.

  4. I’ve bought two of these now, one for a 40th birthday present and one as a wedding present for a couple who wanted maps of Snowdon. They’ve both been truly appreciated, and admired. Delivered promptly too. Beautiful gifts.

    It is really great and I’m quite sure my dad will love it. A really unique and unusual gift.
    Many thanks for ensuring it got to me in good time, I really appreciate it.

    I have recently received my map box and just had to let you know how truly delighted I am with it. The quality of the box and the engraving is fantastic. I love the tactile nature of the sketch map in particular. The box will have pride of place in our campervan as we embark on planned trips around Scotland next year and will house our collection of vintage cloth maps.
    I will definitely be ordering an A4 box soon.

  7. My map box arrived much sooner than expected, and it’s a lovely bit of kit. I couldn’t quite believe that OS don’t sell a branded map box themselves, but in the end I’m glad that they don’t as this wooden one is much nicer.

    Ordered personalised map and A4 file boxes as gifts for Father’s Day – these are so well made, real pieces of art…and smell lovely too. Staff at From the Workshop were really helpful, going above and beyond to make sure the gifts got here in time. Really pleased with these unique and useful items.

    I ordered a Map Box for my dad’s 70th birthday, and it has just arrived (turnaround time 7 days brilliant) and I am so pleased with it. Thank you.
    Lovely finish to the box, so well made. And thankfully I got the map positioning right on your website – he is going to be chuffed.
    Finally, well done to whoever packed it. Fits the box perfectly and very well wrapped and presented. In fact I will be using the same wrapping to send it on.
    Thank you so much and I will definitely recommend you! 🙂

  10. We have just received our mapbox in super quick time
    We ordered it at The Country Living Show in Harrogate. The service there was excellent. The map of Spain was very quickly found and a very appropriate quote for the lud.
    The box is a perfect gift for Christmas.
    Thank you all very much.

  11. Ordered a map box at country living fair which arrived really quickly, it is so beautiful, I can’t wait until my husband opens it at Christmas! I will be ordering more in the future and would recommend to anyone, delighted with the product and service and very helpful staff, the web to design your own box is really easy to use too. Thanks so much.

  12. Ordered two personalised map boxes while at Harrogate Country Living, staff were very helpful, and the order arrived quickly. Delighted with the map boxes as I am sure my husband and father in law will be on Christmas morning.

  13. I have just received my first order from you – a map box for my son’s Christmas present. I am absolutely delighted with it, as I am sure he will be too.

    Thank you so much for the swift completion of this order. I will be recommending you to others.

  14. Thank you, my order arrived this morning. Having bought one last year for my husbands birthday, this one is for my sons Christmas. Good to see it is still the same great quality. The fast delivery surprised me too. Thanks again.

  15. Wow your beautiful box has just arrived and its wonderful. The smell of the wood is fantastic and having the map of our neck of the woods and area my husband walks is perfect. Want to give it to him now but its for Xmas.
    Thank you so much for the initials too, the perfect touch. I will order more

  16. The map box I purchased was beautifully made , promptly delivered and exceeded expectations. Brilliant all round …..Thank you

  17. I bought the Map Box as a present for friends who are avid walkers and have their OS maps just loose on the bookcase. When it was delivered I opened the packaging and removed the invoice, the actual box was well wrapped so I left it and just gifted wrapped it. When my friends opened it after their party they were absolutely delighted with the Map Box and sent me a photo and I must say it looked absolutely stunning, with a map of the Peak District (one of their favourite places) and the engraving finished it off. Great value for money, superb present, excellent delivery and service and will definitely be using this company again.

  18. Love the map box you made – it’s a gift for my brother and shows areas of the Lakes where we’ve walked and stayed over many years – it’s practical as well as a reminder of great times spent with family and friends.

  19. Beautifully made, attractive and practical storage box for maps. Ideal present for the serious walker and map user. Bought as a present and my husband absolutely loves it.

  20. Purchased a map box as a Christmas gift for my husband, it is beautifully made and the personal touches really make it extra special, great value too.

  21. We ordered our map box from you at sharrow vale market, couldn’t be more pleased with it. A local map area on it from the dark peak that means something to us. A beautiful addition to our new home!

  22. I bought a map box for my Dad for Christmas last year. He was very pleased with it. There was an error on one of the maps, however this was quickly resolved and we were sent a second box. We now have two boxes, so thank you!

  23. I bought one of your map boxes for my husband’s 70th birthday as he leaves his maps everywhere! It is beautiful and he is thrilled with it. Top quality and with a local map on the front and his initials too.

  24. Diane Williams

    The box is just brilliant! Perfect present for my map obsessed son-in-laws 40th birthday! Very efficiently produced in time for the birthday (despite the fact that they were moving premises) and also dealt extremely well with slight mix-up on delivery. Very grateful.

  25. Just received a Map Box no.9207 for my 66th birthday from my wife, daughter and grandchildren after a chance remark when advert spotted in Country Walking. It has the Seven Sisters sheet clearly engraved on it, we have walked here many times, and now contains my (our) OS maps of the whole of Sussex, South Downs Way and surrounding areas. A beautiful, practical piece of furniture which will hold so many memories just looking at the box and maps inside.
    My wife was extremely impressed (not easy to do) by the member of staff who dealt with her call and order and we are both extremely pleased by the look, build, and oiled finish.

  26. I could not be more pleased with the map box I ordered or impressed with the service. The box was personalised with the place we live as a gift for my husband’s birthday. He was delighted by such a unique gift and I am thrilled that our OS maps now have such a smart home! The quality is excellent and I can see that this will be the first of many map boxes ordered. What a brilliant business – thank you!

  27. Very happy with my product and Richard also communicated when l had questions about delivery etc. I ordered a map box with the Glen Coe area on and l had my name lasered on and the mountaineering club l belong to West Bromwich Mountaineering Club. I was that impressed it will be in our next newsletter for all our members and hopefully Richard will have more orders👍

    The idea of having a “map box” was inspiration!
    Not to mention finding a gift that was perfect for a guy and was affordable too. However, the real joy was the product itself – really beautiful. I just loved this tactile, delightfully personalised box. I haven’t seen anything like this before and love it’s uniqueness too. The recipient of my gift was delighted. So, the only thing wrong is that I had to give it away!!

  29. A lovely present for my husband’s special birthday, well made and personalised with a map of our very first walk together. Thank you.

  30. A brilliant idea and a wonderful customised gift. Feels truly handmade and unique. I love it and my mum (her 80th) was thrilled.

  31. Our beautiful map box arrived for our anniversary. It was a great personalised gift as The Workshop was able to mark the location on the box where we were married and add our initials to the top. We were both so pleased with the beautiful craftsmanship and functionality for storing our sprawling collection OS Activity maps. The Workshop was also great with correspondence and assured the gift would arrive on time.

  32. Thank you for making the map box personalised for my husband finding the exact area of the Lake District that means so much to him it’s beautiful! Thank you Richard for all your help your customer service is great! so nice to talk to someone on the phone who is really passionate about what they do.

  33. We ordered and customised a box for my brother’s ‘special’ birthday. Very prompt delivery and were very pleased with it. Good idea!

    Roger Ashley

  34. Many thanks for the prompt map box delivery, received and now in pride of place in my sitting room.
    I have to commend you on the quality and finish of the box and am delighted with its unique character.
    A first class product in every way.

  35. well made and nicely finished, efficient and friendly service. After receiving one as a birthday present I ordered 2 more as Christmas gifts.

  36. Wonderful service. Very quick delivery. Nothing was too much trouble. A beautifully made product. Thoroughly pleased. I know my husband will be delighted with his Christmas present. Efficient. I will recommend them to anyone.

  37. Susanna Farley

    Very nice map box, quite exquisitely made. It has a lovely “woody” smell and a satisfying click on closing. Thank you for making and dispatching this in time for my husband’s birthday as requested.

    Best Wishes,

  38. Valerie McAdam

    Very pleased with the box which I had customised . It arrived less than two weeks after placing the order. Very well packed. A lovely gift for my husband.
