Cotswold Outdoor's latest initiative is to run free map reading workshops in stores between now and June. Aimed at the map reading novice, these workshops take you through understanding what a map is telling you through map symbols, contour lines and topography.
You'll also cover how to effectively take grid references - 4 figure, 6-figure and the national grid system - and how to take a compass bearing. The following locations will host the workshops: 10 May - London Knightsbridge 12 May - Chester 19 May - Newcastle 25 May - London Holborn 2 June - Tunbridge Wells 7 June - Cambridge 9 June - Guildford 22 June - Exeter Contact you nearest store directly to book a place. It's also worth remembering that all participants are being offered 25% off Ordinance Survey Maps bought on the day!
So if navigation is something you'd like to know more about, this is a great place to start. Check out the website below.
