Brush up on your navigation

The irrepressible Corwen Walking Festival team have got together with Cotswold Outdoor to offer a free navigation training day on the 27th of July as a prelude to the main festival at the end of August. Just turn up at the Rhug Estate Conference Centre on the A5 at 9:30 am. Come prepared for a walk in the hills, with suitable clothing, a packed lunch and drinks, and a 1:25,000 scale map of the OS Explorer map number 255 for Llangollen and Berwyn. Also bring a magnetic compass if you have one.

Skills Covered will include recognising map symbols, understanding map scales, ground shapes and contours, measuring distances, taking bearings and estimating time and distance. There will also be practical sessions out on the Berwyn mountains including micro navigation.

For more information on clothing and equipment please visit the Corwen Walking Festival website. Please email to confirm your attendance.
