National Map Reading Week

Just how do you get to the pub or that lovely beauty spot? More than half of UK adults are in danger of never finding out, according to a poll commissioned by Ordnance Survey to mark National Map Reading Week (June 3rd – June 9th). 

Fifty-four percent say they don’t ever or very rarely take a map with them when going out on a walk. 

And despite the popularity of walking – around a third of us (30%) confess they’re still pretty nervous of using a map to guide them with just 19% saying they’re confident at map reading. 

Aston spoke to comedians & YouTuber’s Mark Cooper-Jones & Jay Foreman a.k.a Map Men.
