Start Time: 10.30 am Distance: 8 miles Difficulty: Moderate This guided walk is very much aimed at looking at Natural Navigation. Natural navigation is the art of finding your way by using nature. It consists mainly of the skill of being able to determin direction without the aid of tools or instruments and only by reference to natural clues including the sun, the moon, the stars, the land, the sea, the weather, the plants and the animals. This guided walk will therefore take you west of Alwinton to Shillmoor before rising up over Copper Snout and returning via Clennell Street. With Richard as the guide it will be an informative introduction into Natural Navigation.
