Found just 20 miles from the coast, The Isle of Bait is a small, beautiful and untouched paradise.

If you're wondering how it hasn't been spotted before, it appears that a glitch during the most recent geological shift caused a permanent geofence to go up around the island, preventing it from being visible to the naked eye.

Geocached for so long, local authorities are debating whether to rename landmarks and points of interest to bring the island into the post-Brexit era.

Bay of Bright Futures, the Eneychestuary and Happiness Hill are all remnants of a past that is no longer a reality for the rest of the country.

Toblerone Ridge, a local favourite for its distinctive jagged shape, may be the worst affected as plans to widen the gaps between peaks are unveiled as part of a 'Greater Value Modernisation Programme'.

The island has already attracted the attentions of the rich and famous for its business potential. Richard Branson is said to be eyeing up a plot on the east coast for a spaceship refuelling station.

So, we bet you're wondering what the mystical island looks like? Well you're in luck because The Future Mapping Company has produced the first ever map of the Isle of Bait.

They have reproduced its distinctive shape in a vibrant green lithographic ink, highlighting bathymetric sea depths and topographic detail.

The map is already a collector's item and will be available for purchase at futuremaps.com/isle-of-bait from 1st April 2017, don't miss out on your opportunity to own a copy!
