Map Skills Day (Introduction to Navigation)

Find your way in the great outdoors! This one day workshop is a great introduction to map reading and the navigation skills you need to enjoy a great walk in the countryside without reliance on a phone app.  You will be amazed how much detail there is on an Ordnance Survey map!  We will help you make sense of it all and to gain the confidence to plan and follow an interesting route along paths and tracks.

What to Expect:  We start the day with tea/coffee in the Village Cafe, Goring and learn how to get the most out of our maps and introduce basic compass use.  Mid morning we set off on a walk to develop your newly acquired knowledge and skills - you will be given plenty of guidance and tips as we go. We then return to the cafe for a debrief.

What's included:  Tea/coffee on arrival / Use of OS map and compass for the day / Expert tuition and guidance throughout the day.
