Frame for OS map

I'm looking to get a frame for an OS map of the lakes from the 50's, does anyone have any ideas? Went to a framing place today and they quotes around a £100 eeeeek

Have you tried the well known yellow and blue swedish self assembly furniture store.

They do some pretty big frames.

The other alternative is just to google the size you are looking for and see how close you can get with an off the shelf frame.

I did that for a large poster I bought for my wife.  I didn't get a perfect fit, but with some nice backing paper it looks really good.

That's right it starts with an earthquake

Thanks for that, good idea. Don't really want to cut it down as its an old fabric map and covers the whole lake district, but will see what they have.

I thought it might be quite common to frame a map but maybe im just weird lol
