Boroughbridge looks at the demise of Maps and Compass.
The Demise of Map/Compass?
Boroughbridge wonder if any WAW groups have offered courses or informal training in map reading. There seems to be a decline in interest in maps and navigation. Maybe it’s to do with following routes with the aid of leaflets or waymarks and compasses being superseded by GPS devices. All maps are fascinating; and there’s a great deal of satisfaction in being able to navigate with map and, occasionally, compass across unfamiliar territory. Boroughbridge would be interested to hear the comments of fellow walkers on this matter. Please contact John Helliwell (MLTB trained in 1982; lives in Boroughbridge, North Yorkshire)
