“I have just attended my first basic navigational course, because I needed to learn more about map reading, and using a compass properly! My mentor was Ian Winterburn. Ian was the perfect tutor for the complete novice like myself as he has an abundance of enthusiasm for everything outdoors a wealth of knowledge and experience in both navigation and mountain craft. He has now given me the confidence to go out further and for longer on the fells. Thank you for a fantastic day, I would highly recommend this course for anyone who lacks confidence.”
STUART BOND, Fell Runner
“This was a great course and I’d highly recommend it – I went along to improve my map reading and learn how to use a compass rather than just carry it. Ian provided a wealth of knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm, including interesting info on the local plants and wildlife. Spending most of the day out on the hills really helped me get to grips with things by putting it into practice and I’ve come away looking forward to navigating rather than trying to avoid it!”
CLAIRE OLIFFE, Project Manager
“Ian is a well respected outdoorsy person, a long-standing member of Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team and a fell runner to boot. Yes, I know my other half is all of the above, but you can still learn a lot by going out on the hill with a good variety of people. I wasn’t about to waste a chance to get out and share a day on the hill.”
