The handrails that are very useful when navigating are not like this!

Handrails for navigation are linear features, either natural or manmade, like a wall or a stream. They allow you to follow alongside so that you don’t get lost and are especially useful in poor visibility when it’s potentially easier to get ‘pixie led’. Deviating your route slightly to use handrails as a means to find your target is a good idea when the mist is low.

How many useful handrails can you spot on these maps?
