How to take a bearing. A helpful step by step guide to tackle navigation with perfect precision.

The video breaks down the steps and gives you the skills you’ll need to take a bearing whilst out exploring.

The only things you’ll need to practice at home are an OS map, a compass and a permanent marker.

Here is a great link to find OS maps cheap!

We suggest getting the laminated active maps as it means if it rains or you write on the map with the permanent marker you can clean it off and the map won’t be ruined.

Now all you need to do is get outside and start practising.
