A map is a bird's eye view of an area. Framed on a wall and it is a  piece of art. But in your hands, it is a vital piece of equipment. Coupled with a compass and the knowledge of how to use the two together, and you have the skills to create your own adventures in the mountains. 


COST: £30


LOCATION: Dartmoor
