Map Reading for Walkers

The aim of the Map Reading for Walkers Group is to learn more about ordnance survey maps and how we can use the information on them to explore areas of the countryside with more confidence.

Marjorie Watson will be leading the group. Marjorie has a wealth of experience in leading walks in the UK.

The group will meet on an ad-hoc basis with a mix of practical and theoretical exercises.

The Tattenhall area straddles three separate Ordnance Survey maps so when you are walking in this area you might need to refer to all three. Marjorie has recently discovered that you can order from Ordnance Survey your own customised map that centres on a particular area. You define the boundaries of your map and you can even use one of your own photographs for the front cover of the map.

An extremely fruitful first session comprised seven members meeting at Alison's Coffee Shop where they began by looking at the map and learning what is meant by different symbols.
