Description

Join us for a day learning basic navigation

This is a day’s introduction aimed at creating an interest in navigation and to give you more confidence to explore other areas on your own. You will learn and practice some useful navigational techniques, including map and compass work, in an informal and relaxed environment. The day begins and ends at Alnham Church from lower ground initially towards Hazletonrig before ascending to higher levels around High Knowes. You will cover up to 8 miles with plenty of opportunity for questions and answers. Maps and compass will be supplied.

Numbers are limited so it is essential to book; please do not just turn up on the day.

Duration –7 hours

Distance – 6 miles

Category – Moderate. Medium length walks of 5-16km (3-10 miles) on hilly ground with rising and falling levels. A reasonable level of fitness is required.

Please dress for changeable weather, wear walking boots or shoes and bring drinks and snacks. Sorry, dogs are not allowed on this walk.

Directions: From Rothbury take the B6341 west to Thropton. At the 'Cross Keys' take the road on the right for Netherton, at the school junction turn right for Alnham. Park on the grass verge in front of the church.

OS Grid Ref: NT 997 109

For those wishing to use GPS/Sat-Nav to find walk start points please note that, particularly in open country, postcodes cover a large area, so, whilst the postcode will get you to the right general area, you will still need to follow the detailed directions to locate the actual Walk Start Point.
