Last weekend I held a map and compass course. Well, actually a National Navigation Award Scheme Silver training and assessment course.

The venue for this was the Berwyn range, and the course candidates made the most of the superb walking in the area, whilst also learning the required skills at Silver level. So, by the end of the weekend they’d all climbed Craig Rhiwarth, Y Clogydd, and skirted around Post Gwyn quite a bit! Not to mention learning how to take and follow compass bearings, understanding contours, pacing and timing, and access to the hills.

All candidates passed the assessment, and obviously enjoyed the whole weekend.
