The day will start with us meeting up at the Penyghent Cafe in Horton-in-Ribblesdale. We will have a quick chat about the day, recap on some basic map reading and then look at the use of a compass. Then it will be time to go and learn how to use a compass in a very practical way on a walk in an area close by. We will return to the cafe at the end of the day for a debrief and possibley some cake!
