Want to learn something new? Want to try something different this year? If the answers to both questions are yes, this might be the perfect thing for you.

We have teamed up with AFS Mountaineering to provide a map reading taster day right here in Robin Hood’s Bay. AFS Mountaineering is run by Fabian Seymour who is a National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS) tutor based in York.

Fabian runs one-day navigation skills workshops that are designed to give you more confidence when going out walking on the North York Moors. Of course, he cannot cover everything in one day but he can cover a range of tools, skills and techniques that will boost your navigation confidence including:

  • What to pack
  • Clothing and equipment
  • Making sense of Ordinance Survey and other maps
  • Landscape features as navigation tools
  • Orientating maps
  • Which path?
  • Going off piste
  • Navigation strategies
  • Walking on steeper or difficult ground

The one-day course is suitable for anyone interested in going walking more independently from pre-programmed GPS routes. Just some basic fitness and walking boots/clothes/waterproofs is all you need.

The workshops cost £30 per person and are run by request. There needs to be a minimum of 3 people and a maximum of 8.

If you’re staying with us and want to take part, why not get in touch with us for more information. The course is £20 per person for anyone staying with Baytown Holiday Cottages.
