A navigation training day is to be staged by officials from the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority to help people use their Ordnance Survey maps
Held at the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes on July 18th, the Pathfinder event is open to the first 20 to book, with navigation training including map reading, grid referencing and compass work.
The event begins at 10:30 BST and continues until 16:30, which may help ensure that a very thorough level of training is provided.
Such skills could be useful to people donning their waterproof jackets
and looking to go walking
even when the weather does not offer great visibility, something that will make knowing how to navigate more important.
While Hawes is perhaps best known for the creamery producing Wensleydale Cheese, it is close to the Pennine Way and nearby mountain peaks include the summits of Great Shunner Fell, Lovely Seat and Dodd Fell Hill.
