A day on Dartmoor practicing our feature-finding skills. Included map reading, walking on a baring, pacing, timing, contouring, and justification of position. A few minor hiccups due to some boundaries being marked in blue and some leats in black, or not marked at all, however we muddled through and concluded it's much safer to use contour lines and other non-movable features to prove your location!
Perfect weather for a day on the moors.
