1st North Leigh Scouts

Navigating and blankets

Our cubs have been working hard on their staged navigator badges this term – which has involved understanding how to read different types of maps, including the scale on OS maps, compass points and reading keys. After a vote the cubs opted for a town based hike this term so we followed the Witney Blanket trail, with the cubs reading the map and directions to identify interesting buildings from Witney’s woolly history and it’s blanket making traditions.

It’s an interesting walk – you can download the map we used here.
