This is a 2 day course designed to improve your map reading and learn, or improve, your compass skills. You will learn how to use the map and compass to help you in good and bad visibility. You don’t need to have used a compass before as the course will take you through everything step by step. We will walk between 5 and 8 miles each day at a leisurely pace, practising using a map and compass in a moorland environment. Compasses can be borrowed for the course (£10 returnable deposit).
