Introduction to Navigation

Event date:
9th June 2019
Time:
10:30
Location:
Alnham, NE66 4TL

Our Introduction to Navigation course is your key to getting started in countryside and moorland walking.

No experience of hill walking required to attend this Introductory course because the content of the course is aimed at beginners. This day's course is aimed at creating an interest in navigation and to give you more confidence to explore other areas on your own.

You will learn and practice some useful navigational techniques, including map and compass work, in an informal and relaxed environment. You will cover up to 5 miles with plenty of opportunity for questions and answers. Maps and compass will be supplied.

If you do have some experience of hill walking but are not confident about planning walks, navigating and understanding the equipment required, then this introductory course is an ideal way to learn.

Please dress for changeable weather, wear walking boots or shoes and bring drinks and snacks.

Numbers are limited so it is essential to book.
