Free Beginner's Map-Reading And Compass Workshop.

Learn about navigation from expert Ordnance Survey Field Reps.

Are you at home with a map and compass? Knowing how to read contour lines, take a bearing and judge distances are vital outdoor skills.

Even if you're sticking to well trodden paths, being able to read the landscape's features adds hugely to your enjoyment. So brush up your skills at one of our free workshops, where the experts from Ordnance Survey (OS) will soon have you orienteering with ease.

Steve Backshall, OS's brand ambassador, says I'm always with a map and compass. Everyone should be able to read a map and compass. It can save lives.

Tickets are FREE. But spaces are limited so don't miss out. Get in contact with your local store now to book tickets.
