On this short walk from Langham Brewery I will be handing over the navigation reins to the children. However, don’t get too alarmed, I will be ensuring they don’t go too far off piste, and we will still make it back to the brewery in time for lunch.

Before we set off we will be getting our bearings and talking a little about local geography and maps. Each child will then hopefully have the opportunity to lead a section of the walk, with guidance. However, everyone has a role to play on this walk as we’ll be creating maps from what we observe along the way. In today’s world, where tech rules, we have all lost our internal compass. This walk hopes to redress the balance a little by helping the children become more aware of their surroundings and direction. Along the way, there will also be things to find and learn about the local area. Perhaps the adults will learn something too!
