About Us

About Us

Compass Point is an independent family owned retail business supplying a vast range of equipment for the outdoor adventure enthusiast.

Compass Point was born in 1991 out of the enthusiasm for taking part in outdoor activities, an enthusiasm that still exists for the owners Rick & Angela Houghton. Rick started his climbing and fell walking in the Lakes back in 1973, going on monthly fell walks from school, and joining the climbing club. Both of them have been keen backpackers tackling many long distance walks.

Orienteering was started in the early eighties, one of his first events being the Karrimor Mountain marathon at Strathyr in 1983, Rick has since gone on to plan the elite and A courses on KIMM when held in Galloway in 1996.

The Houghton family is regularly at orienteering events with the Compass Point orienteering shop, since the start up in 1991 Compass Point has grown to become the leading outlet for orienteering clothing & equipment in the UK.

The Compass Point Online Shop was created in 1998 and was the first online orienteering shop in the UK.

Product development and sourcing is an ongoing priority for both Rick and Angela. Their children have regularly taken part in orienteering & outdoor activities, often giving important feedback on equipment for the younger activist.

Rick and Angela feel that one of the key ingredients to the success of their business, besides their own enthusiasm, is the participation of their staff who without exception are all active outdoor people.
