This exciting Find Your Way activity will enable you to experience the interesting historical heritage of Gravesend. There are checkpoints shown on the map. The aim is to navigate from checkpoint to checkpoint using a route of your choice and locate the checkpoints on your course using a free, specially prepared, hard copy map. The walks can be done in conjunction with the historical trail leaflet.


In an added twist, the activity can also be experienced virtually by using the free MapRun App. Simply download the App ahead of your visit and follow the guidance on the Dartford Orienteers website to bring up your chosen course. Click ‘Go to Start’ and you will see the map shows on your phone. After exiting the App at home, the course is on your phone and will not require a 4G connection when you get to Gravesend market. The reference points on the App are numbered the same as on the walking trail historical leaflet for ease of cross reference.


You can now navigate using the GPS capability, GPS will register your location as you travel from the Start and at each checkpoint, seeing the checkpoint change colour and beep to let you know you’ve hit the right location! After reaching the Finish, you can ‘See Results’ to compare your elapsed time and track taken with others who have done the same course if you choose to do so.
