Learning to navigate in the great outdoors can be a challenging experience. I’ve done some searching on the web and found some useful videos which are shown below. The first 2 videos are in fact a series of videos – you can view each in turn or navigate to the one you want by clicking in the top left hand corner (that is the North West corner for those who can’t get enough of bearings).

The first ones are some from Ordnance Survey and as most maps used are produced by them these are very helpful.  It is quite good but not necessarily the best. You can, of course, watch these on Youtube to see a bigger version.

Here is another good series by an expert!

The following 2 vids are on maps and are more detailed (if not the most professional) but they do last a little longer (10mins or so).
