I have three ways to find due north.

1.) Look for rusty cars.

2.) Look for moss on the north side of the upside-down cars in my
neighbor's yard.

3.) Geoclock. When the sun was due South according to Geoclock, I put a
stake in the shadow of my towers. Not only that, it also allowed me to find
due north east and due north west.

Caution, this only works when the sun is out!
