The Silver National Navigation Award is a two day, practical hands-on award. It is aimed at people with some previous navigation experience and those that have completed their Bronze Navigator Award. The ability to navigate when out on a walk is an essential safety skill. Whether on a mountain, bridleway, footpath or Moor, the ability to know where you have been, where you are and where you are going is fundamental.
