Day 2. We will convert these skills and develop them by heading off the paths and in to the countryside south of Ingleborough.

“It is great to be able to use the learned skills and actually achieve something. The weekend has given me confidence to take to the outdoors without the fear of getting lost. If I do get lost I will be able to find the route again” Debbie.

The Navigation Training Weekend is ideal for those who want to move from safer walks on paths (and crowds) to explore further afield both away from paths but also in the higher hills where the weather may become a factor.

Being spread over 2 days the course also gives more time to fully understand the techniques and where and how to use them.

Day 1 is based in Long Preston, an unspoilt village near Settle.

Day 2 is from Austwick/Clapham and explores the slopes of Ingleborough.
