About Us

Compassworks has been operating on Dartmoor since 2004, specialising in the provision of map reading and land navigation skills, training and development.

Compassworks is owned and run by Martin Williams. Martin has many years’ experience of walking in the UK, leading groups and training young people undertaking Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expeditions and participating in the Ten Tors challenge.  Martin is a qualified Mountain Leader, member of the Mountain Training Association, the British Mountaineering Council, a former member of Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team and has the required First Aid qualifications, in fact when Martin is not out on the Moor, he is a First Aid trainer!

Designed with professionalism, safety and enjoyment uppermost, our high-quality courses, which we firmly believe are some of the best of their kind available, are based around various locations on Dartmoor, some of the most difficult map reading terrain in the UK.

Whether a beginner / novice or just wishing to build on your existing map reading knowledge, we can help you develop the skills necessary to navigate with confidence.  Our range of courses can take you from learning under supervision, to 'flying solo' in poor visibility and / or at night.  Depending on the skill level you want to achieve, we can get you there.

In the time Compassworks has been operating, we have helped hundreds of individuals gain more confidence by developing their navigational skills.

We look forward to hearing from you to discuss your training and navigational requirements.
