25/04/2021 | Navigating on Open Moorland Moderate walk

Walk overview

This course is for anyone who has previously attended an introductory navigation course or knows the basics of map reading and can at least half-remember how to take a compass bearing. It will equip you to plan your own moorland routes and to start navigating on open moorland, on what can often seem like rather featureless terrain.

We will plan together a route of 7-8 miles on open moorland, taking into consideration the weather, the conditions and the ability of our group. We will revise the basics of map reading and compass use and practise these repeatedly. You will learn to look more carefully at gentle changes in the height of the land and other subtle features that may be all you have to navigate by at times. By the end of the day, you should feel a degree of competence to navigate on this terrain and be aware of your limits and of what you need to work on.

We will be a small group and keep our distance from each other in accordance with government guidelines. If you develop Covid symptoms or need to self-isolate, we will offer you another date or a refund.

For further details contact the trainer, Geri Skeens.

01/05/2021 | Navigation for Beginners Weekend Easy walk

Walk overview

This course will give you the foundation skills to competently navigate and route plan on moorland. Day one covers the basic skills of map reading and using a compass, practising each technique several times. We do this in the course of a walk of about 5 miles. We end the day by planning a route on open moorland for the following day. On day two we apply all your new skills to our planned route, which will be about 7 miles long, consolidating what you learnt the previous day. This course assumes no previous knowledge so is suitable for complete beginners. If you have previously learnt some navigation skills and wish to refresh them, you are equally welcome.

07/05/2021 | A Day on the Bog! Moderate walk

Walk overview

Did you know that the Earth’s bogs store more carbon than its rainforests? Bog mosses are hero plants, building peat bogs at the rate of a metre per millennium. The bogs that blanket the upland plateaux of North and South Dartmoor are six metres thick in places; not only do they lock away carbon but they regulate river flow, preventing flood and drought downstream, and are home to some rare and extraordinary plants and animals. Plants here have to live off just rainwater and sunshine; all that is except those which have taken to eating insects! We’ll go in search of these special little plants, learn more about life on the bog and enjoy the wild, remote beauty of Dartmoor’s peaty heart.

The day involves walking approx. 8 miles, some of it on rough, wet and slightly boggy ground. Walking boots will do fine; no need for wellies unless you enjoy walking that far in them.

We will be a small group and keep our distance from each other as per government guidelines. If you develop Covid symptoms or need to self-isolate, we will offer you another date or a refund.
