Keen walkers who want to make better use of their Ordnance Survey maps
might wish to head to the Peak District on January 22nd.
The Navigation Guided Walk (Grade C) event is being staged at Chew Moors by national park rangers to give attendees the chance to improve their navigation skills.
Walkers will cover between six to eight miles on foot, which means they will need to come equipped with essentials such as walking boots
, according to the national park authority website.
Organisers of the event have also suggested they bring a map and compass, as well as a packed lunch and drink.
Visitors are not obliged to book in advance but will have to meet at the Dove Stone Ranger Centre at 10:30 in order to join in.
The importance of having a map was recently highlighted when a person who was walking down Scafell Pike got lost at Hollowstones. Rescuers were able to track him down by using his smartphone's Global Positioning System, but criticised the walker for climbing the mountain without a map.
