Join Andy for a day of map reading training!
You’re in experienced hands, Andy having walked alone across most of the UK’s wilds spaces and further afield too.
He’s a Mountain Leader and has delivered many map and compass sessions, all to great acclaim 🙂 We will start at the beginning, in a cafe environment, and look at the basic uses of an Ordnance Survey Map, the standard map for hill walkers in the UK.
We will also learn about the compass for navigation alongside other key navigation techniques such as pacing, timing, handrails etc. Lunch will be at Laura’s Diner and when suitably refreshed we’ll head off to an area of nearby bleak common land for some truly challenging navigation problems that will test your skills and hone them at the same time.
