Navigation Courses

geo mapskillsDo you sometimes get lost, occasionally confused by what's on the map, know what a compass can do for you other than point to North? Then why not come on a navigation course run by Sam Borman, our Navigation Skills Trainer.

The course consists of you studying a training book, which will be supplied. Then go out for a day on the Moors to put into practise what you have learnt and the best part is that there is no charge for this course.

Unique 'Beating the Bounds' at Sancton - Sunday 6th May 2018

' Beating the bounds' is an ancient custom associated with Rogation days, still observed in some English and Welsh parishes, where the public walk around the boundary of their parish.  Sancton Churches have updated the custom by organising a number of walks following the parish boundary across land [with landowners co-operation] not normally open to the public.
