About Us

We are a niche company based in Northumberland dedicated to helping walkers and outdoor enthusiasts learn how to explore and use the latest GPS Technology to navigate safely wherever they might find themselves. We are committed to giving you the highest possible level of training and assistance to achieve your goals.

GPST was formed in 2003 by Peter Judd & Simon Brown who lived in the Lake District and at the time where both Lake District National Park Voluntary Rangers. Simon and Peter has since retired and the company is now wholly owned by Shepherds Walks Ltd, who also run Shepherds Walks and Capricorn Mohair Socks.

We initially delivered courses in Cumbria but as demand has grown, we have expanded nationwide. We havenít lost sight of the fundamentals that motivated us to form our company and our intention is to stay a small focused company giving a 'second to none' personal service.

We have built a small but highly knowledgeable team of experts able to provide first class personal training. Weíre fussy about where we deliver our training and prefer to use village halls in scenic locations.

You can be sure when you come on one of our courses you will be in the hands of a team of friendly experts who enjoy passing on their accumulated knowledge to like-minded enthusiasts in an enjoyable and relaxed way, all taking place at venues with walking straight out of the door.

Why Choose Us?

We are the acknowledged market leaders in our field and the only approved training partner for all the market leaders. Our courses explain in an easy and friendly way how to get the best from your GPS, don't be worried about all the jargon and technology; all is explained as we go along.
We provide laptops on our courses and ensure all students understand how to link these systems to their GPS.

If you haven't got a GPS yet or would like to try a different model, we'll discuss your needs and, where possible, loan you one for the course so you can try it out. Outdoor exercises are usually straight out of the door into beautiful parkland or open countryside.

We work with all the Market Leaders

In addition we are delighted to be approved training partners by all the market leaders Anquet, Garmin, Magellan, Memory-Map, Ordnance Survey, Lowrance, Quo, Satmap, Silva and ViewRanger. As you can see you'll be in expert hands when you come on one of our courses.
