New OS Map reading videos

I’m always with a penknife, map and compass. I’m an OS map user in a big way. It’s almost a daily thing. I’m enormously proud of OS. Its level of cover in this country is extraordinary. I think it’s something that, hand on heart, Brits do better than anyone else.
Map reading is a skill that’s dying out. Everyone should be able to read with a map and compass. It can and will save lives. Steve Backshall
Ordnance Survey created a series of videos with Simon King some years ago to offer a range of guidance on grid references, use of a compass etc.

They have now been updated with Steve Backshall as a presenter.
Here's the one on Grid References. Visit the website to see the others and download some map reading guides.
