We offer one and two day courses covering the basics of navigation and map reading, we will cover practical skills such as how to orientate a map using a compass, relate features from the map to the ground and vice versa, grid references and route planning. We will also discuss walking equipment, local and national access issues, personal responsibilities and the Countryside Code.
Courses are aimed to give you the skills and confidence to successfully plan and navigate walks in the countryside using paths and tracks and are perfect for people with no or little navigation experience whether you are new to the outdoors or have been relying on others, guidebooks or easy well-defined routes.
All learning equipment supplied by greenTor.

The whole course was presented in a professional and friendly manner, the explanations were clear and all the practical exercises were challenging, interesting and fun. I was impressed at how you had planned the materials and exercises and adapted to having a 10 year old join the course! It was great that she was able to participate fully and you managed to pitch all the exercises at the right level so it was all useful, challenging and enjoyable for all ages, something which I think is quite difficult to achieve. She loved every minute of it and came away full of enthusiasm and inspiration.
