Understand how to orientate a map, look for features and plan for the optimum route between controls, not to mention a few compass tricks too. Delivered by the friendly team from Lakeland Orienteering Club and British Orienteering. All ages and abilities welcome!

Grasmere village and lake
Nestling at the foot of some spectacular fells and with its own lake, the village has many shops, pubs and cafes. You can also visit Wordsworth’s grave in the churchyard and buy the legendary Grasmere Gingerbread. Popular walks include following Red Bank Road and then the footpath along the west shore of the lake towards Rydal Water. With no motor boats, this quieter lake is great for swimming and rowing. In the summer you can hire rowing boats on the lake. More info here.
