For More information contact me at or direct message me on Facebook. I aim to respond to all emails within 24 hours, however I can be out in the hills with no signal and will contact you on my return.
Navigation workshops are a great way to look into your own skills and improve on any areas that you may struggle with. After a brief meet up and discussion about the days plan we will aim to walk a route and summit one of the many mountains in the area. People will be given the opportunity to lead sections of the walk and I will be on hand to help people during the day.  It's a really relaxed session and will give plenty of opportunity to learn new skills and develop your previous ones. This course is a great for people preparing for NGB awards like Hill and Moorland, Lowland leader and Mountain Leader Award.

"Had a great day out with Matt revisiting some nav. We covered all the basics, building on the areas I was already familiar with - a very well thought out day and really appreciated Matt's flexible approach to teaching. Looking forward to getting out and practising!
Thanks for a fab day "

I've never used a map or compass, will this course be ok for me?
This workshop is aimed at all levels from beginners to advanced. You will be given guidance and instruction throughout the day to ensure you come away with some new skills.

I’m not very fit, how far do we walk?
The workshop aim is to teach you navigation skills not push your physical limits. We normally walk around 10-12 km during the day and have plenty of breaks and stops.

Do you provide equipment?
I can provide maps on request but would always recommend buying your own and a Silva Type 4 Compass. For the day you will only require normal hiking gear and waterproofs.
