Welcome!

Managed through carelessness to lose years of posts so it will soon be time to start over. Plus, happily, I've been diverted by a travelling life.

No prizes for guessing what will be top of the 2019 New Year Resolutions!

Find your way with Cotswold


Pick up a map and compass and navigate your way to your nearest Cotswold Outdoor store to participate in their upcoming series of free navigation workshops in association with Ordnance Survey between April and June. After a successful series of navigation workshops in 2010, this year the number of sessions has doubled, with 15 sessions across Britain offering more people the opportunity to build their essential mapping skills and giving them more confidence to explore the great outdoors. 
The interactive classes, hosted by Ordnance Survey experts, are aimed at beginners or anyone wanting to brush up on their basic skills. Attendees will learn a variety of vital information handy for when those GPS signals sway or for sharpening up tried and tested map and compass methods.  The 15 sessions will take part in Cotswold Outdoor stores across Britain, encompassing all areas of mapping a journey. All participants will receive 25% off any Ordnance Survey maps purchased on the day. Tickets are free and can be picked up or reserved over the phone at the relevant store - www.cotswoldoutdoor.com.
