Join our walk leader Stan Lester to demonstrate map and compass navigation on the open moorland of North Hill (please bring a compass if you have one; there will be a few spares on the day). We will also visit some of the remains of the WWII tank training ground, and if there is time we will return on the contour path around Bratton Ball.
