Understand Contour Lines Course:
Understanding contour lines isn’t easy; contour lines are often the thing that navigators struggle with the most. Wouldn’t it be great if you could practice by spending the day navigating with a map that only has contours and grid lines on? Well now you can with this special one-off training day. An opportunity to walk the fine Derbyshire hills whilst learning to understand contour lines.
In this course, you’ll be working in small groups to enable you to get the most out of the day. You’ll be certain of an invigorating time which will stretch both the mind and the body!
The ‘Contour Lines Course’ will be ideal for those who want to take their navigation to the next level, especially those who want to really understand contour lines.
We’ll spend the day on Kinder Scout, whose contour lines are subtle (well some of them) and are sure to test you. Navigating from feature to feature, as the day unfolds you will begin to see both Kinder Scout and contours lines and their usefulness in a whole new light.
