When I turned 50 I decided that I should really learn to navigate so that I could enjoy the hills in a safer way. My dad and school had taught me to map read when I was a teenager but I knew I was rusty and that there was a bit more that I needed to know about the arcane pleasures of contours!
I started off by doing the Walking Group Leader (WGL), now called Hill and Moorland Leader (HML) with a view to seeing how it went first before deciding if I wanted to take things further. I really enjoyed the training, consolidation and the assessment so that decided it for me.
I enrolled on the ML and it took me about 2 years to achieve it what with working full time and part time and not living very near to actual mountains, although the Pennines is a pretty good training ground.

My friend and I have started up our navigation training business so that we can pass on our skills and our passion for walking in both mountains, hills and moorland: http://mapandcompass.wix.com/mapandcompass

Experienced navigation skills trainer. I'm happy to lead walks for groups of adults and individuals. Main areas I can easily travel to are the Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, the North Yorkshire Moors and Snowdonia.
I live and work in West Yorkshire. The day job is as an educational technologist at a local university so this does mean it's mainly weekends that I've got available.
Please feel free to get in touch.
