beginners navigation course Review by Sarah
Overall Experience
The beginners navigation course led by TJ on 15th July was excellent. Small group of friendly people and a fun way to learn pitched at just the right level. I would highly recommend! (Posted on 20/07/2018)
Basic Navigation course Review by Philip
Overall Experience
Just completed on 10.06.18 with Paul.
I can highly recommend this course as it was both interesting and enjoyable and has given me enough confidence to use a map and compass for walking myself. (Posted on 12/06/2018)
Enjoyed every minute! Review by Christine
Overall Experience
We’d like to thank Tom for a wonderful day of instruction!! We enjoyed every minute of our ‘Navigation for beginners’ course. Having only used circular walks books prior to this course we just felt we needed to know a bit more about map reading, using a compass and to generally improve our (Basic) map reading skills! Tom was very knowledgeable and patient with our attempts at ‘having a go!’ We can thoroughly recommend it both for the confidence we gained by the end of walk and of course the great views! Just contemplating our first compass route and what course we can try next! (Posted on 31/05/2018)
Fantastic day out Review by Eva Beazley
Overall Experience
Having benefited hugely from Neil's patience and wisdom as a guide up Scafell Pike last year we decided to go on a beginner's navigation course with him this year. We had a fantastic day out learning a huge amount about maps, compasses and how to observe the terrain around us to find our way. Neil was hugely knowledgeable, long-suffering as we jumped around with our questions, and great fun to be with. We loved it and felt vastly more confident as a result of our day. The next three days' walking around and about Derwent Water were even more enjoyable as as result. Thank you! (Posted on 15/05/2018)
Great Day! Review by Steve
Overall Experience
Really enjoyed this day and learned a lot. Now I have the skills to navigate my way around the fells by map and compass rather than relying on the Garmin. Well recommended even for experienced walkers (Posted on 15/05/2018)
Excellent course Review by Chris
Overall Experience
I did the beginner's navigation course with Neil on Sunday 15th April and had a very enjoyable day. The weather was horrible (mist in the morning, heavy rain all afternoon), but that just emphasised how essential it is to be able to know where you are with confidence when you can't necessarily see an awful lot around you. By the end of the day I felt confident that, while certainly no expert, I'm now in a position to be able to go out and practice for myself the skills I've learnt. I'd recommend this course to every walker!

Beginners Navigation Review by Dawn
Overall Experience
This is just to say that Coralie was a brilliant teacher/leader for our course. She was very helpful and explained things brilliantly. Thank you to her for such a good day (Posted on 10/04/2018)
Navigation Course Review by John
Overall Experience
I am writing to say what a brilliant day I had yesterday on the Navigation Course. Tom the trainer could not have been more helpful and can not praise him enough on his training technique, I really did not expect to gain as much knowledge over such a short period. Having never used a map or compass before I have now purchased them and it is going to open a whole new world to me. Tom was also a most charming companion for the day. (Posted on 13/03/2018)

feedback Review by Christopher
Overall Experience
Hi to all at The Lake District Walker.

Just a bit of feedback regarding my day on the basic navigation course with Paul Cannon.
Paul was very professional in his approach and I have to say I really did learn a lot.
I was always impressed by the OS Maps but Paul has made me look at them in a different light and now I am just blown away by the detail that I didn't even know existed on them.
This has reinforced the bit I did know and added whole new dimension to my navigating skills.
It has given me the confidence to go out with a map and compass and not be confused anymore.
I have already put the skills to good use the following day on a relatively simple route (Loughrigg Fell), I had the confidence to go up one way, trample across the tops and come down via a different route, and I knew where I was on the map at all times.
Well pleased.

Many thanks.
