Workshop and walk – TALIESIN using the map to plan walks, find the way and work out where we are allowed to go.
19/11/2020 10:00 - 19/11/2020 12:30
This workshop is for people wishing to gain confidence in using Ordinance Survey maps to plan walks and navigate while out walking. O.S. maps contain an amazing amount of information which can be fun to puzzle out and makes it possible for anyone to plan a good walk without being shown it first. The workshop is led by Jenny Dingle (Mountain Leadership Certificate, First Aid for Outdoor Leaders)
We will start in an outdoor covered area in Taliesin. We will look in detail at the map key, talk about reading contour lines, look at the access information on the map (rights of way, open access areas and other access) and talk about ways to ‘set’ the map. We will also discuss how to work out distances and journey times. There will be enough maps for everyone to have one.
Then we will go on 3km (2 mile) circular walk which will take us up onto the hill South East of Taliesin, along the ridge with stunning views and down past the Erglodd mine workings back to Taliesin. We will all be reading the map in detail on this walk. It is a bit steep in places and rough / muddy underfoot but the pace will accommodate the needs of all of the group – there is no need to hurry.
We have thought carefully about making this activity as covid-safe as reasonably possible but of course we cannot eliminate all risk. There will be eight places.
This walk is commissioned by the Dolau Dyfi Project. This project has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities - Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.
