Introduction to Navigation Skills

This 1 day introduction to navigation skills is aimed at people who are apprehensive about navigating or would like to learn the basics before attending a more intensive multi-day course. It is an ideal introduction for those with little or no navigation experience.

By the end of the day you will be more confident in your ability to plan and undertake your own walks in the countryside.

The aim of the day is to introduce you to the basic theory of map types, scales, symbols, and grid references, we’ll then go for a walk and look at how to follow a route on the ground, setting the map to follow linear features and consider the basic use of a compass.

This is a fun and relaxed day and if time allows we will have a group session testing our new skills in a dedicated orienteering course.
