Navigation

Learning to read a map is still an essential skill even in the days of Satellite Navigation and mobile phones. We use navigation as a tool in many activities, on mountain bikes, walking or on the water. It is a great skill for life and once you have learnt to read a map you will never forget it.

We use the National Navigation Young Award Scheme as a tool to help young people demonstrate their increasing confidence at map reading, learning how to plan a route and work out how long it might take to walk it. Along the way we take in some beautiful sights and places, glimpsing a deer through the trees, hearing the birds and seeing the sea from the top of a hill miles inland.
