An Introduction to Map Reading – Chilterns Walking Festival

October 11 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

This ‘learning by doing’ course on basic map reading is aimed at novice map readers who want to explore the Chilterns, confident that they will not get lost.  You will be taken on a very scenic 6 mile walk around the National Trust Ashridge Estate led by Dick Chapman, author of ’60 Choice Walks in the Chilterns’.  Map skills will be learnt by following the Ordnance Survey map within the book, a copy of which is included in the price (RRP £10.00).

The book is aimed at both beginners and experienced walkers and will be handed out at the start of the course.

Feedback from last course: ‘Great event, Dick Chapman is an inspiration! I learnt a lot from him on the day and he has inspired me to do a lot more map reading driven walking in the Chilterns using his book!’

Feedback from previous course: ‘Excellent event, very enjoyable and informative. We will definitely use the book provided to do other walks using our new knowledge. Thank you’
