Our highly popular Ordnance Survey Beginners Map-Reading & Compass Workshop is back in the Nottingham store this year. The free workshop will be on Tuesday 19th July from 18:30-20:00.

The workshops are aimed at beginners and cover:

  • Brief overview of OS (includes how the National Grid was created)        
  • Explanation of how to read a map using the 6 figure grid reference
  • Explanation of how to use a compass in conjunction with a map
  • Practical exercises for the audience to participate in using maps on boards and compasses

The workshop is free, however as these events are highly popular, you will need to get a free ticket to secure your place. Tickets are available in store or can be booked over the phone/by email.
