The Cneifion Arete, the blade of rock rising up the eastern side of Cwm Cneifion disappearing into an inverted abyss. I look back so fondly on that weekend, crammed into a tent eating salt and pepper chips and drinking beer after a day of climbing in my favourite place in the world!!

Not a map today but a gorgeous book by Peter Charles Geoffrey Jackson, artist, writer and avid collector. Born March 4 1922 died May 2 2003. A fascinating man he wrote and illustrated this London Explorer. His wonderfully illustrated and annotated maps accompany text that has fascinating historical anecdotes and facts about London. #grabamapandgoexplore London! #london#ordnancesurvey#mapreadingweek#getoutside#cartography
Back from the field and getting back to training for @missionhighwater next year.... Shimmied up to the Brecon Beacons for the day. Good ascent up Pen Y Fan with a big ol'heavy backpack. Got my first dip in Llyn Cwm Llwch (571m). Dragged my pals along too, I promised them views at the top - we got fog. I promised a nice swim - it was ice cold! Haha... hopefully they'll come along again!
My @othreeltd kept me warm 😉
National Map Reading week ... Getting little people involved and interested in map reading is an amazing gift you can pass on to ensure they have the skills to have some epic adventures of their own. There are some fab sites online where you can pick up ideas to make it fun but Ordnance Survey have a link on their page where children can learn while they’re playing games or taking part in quizzes ➡️ https://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/education/teachers/resources-ages-7-11.html
Well Storm Ophelia certainly created some strange weather yesterday with the sun and sky turning red due to the sand and dust being carried over from Southern Europe and Africa. ✨
As the sun moved through the dust, the light was reflected and refracted✨
This was taken on a much calmer summer’s day at St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall 😀
Contour lines have the ability to turn a 2D map into a 3D representation of the land around you. Understanding contours and being able to 'see' the shape of the land from them is a really important tool when it comes to navigation.
Join us on our Navigation Day in the Peak District 11th November to learn all about them. There's a link to all of our upcoming events in the bio.
Who remembers learning about contour lines at school? Was geography the best or worst subject?
