GEOGRAPHY TRIP TO DORSET
A group of AS Geography students braved the elements to explore coastal issues and settlements in the area.
Students embarked on a four day trip to Dorset expecting a mixture of weather and faced high winds and rain in their quest for geographical knowledge.
The party carried out a range of fieldwork activities in Lyndhurst, Boscombe Beach and Moors Valley Park to investigate the various ways these locations have rebranded themselves. They also worked on the coast at Barton-on-Sea, Studland Heath and Bay, and Dibden Bay to study erosion rates, management of the fragile sand dunes, and the value of building a container port at Dibden.
The students replenished their energy in a range of local tea shops before going back to work. Trip leader, Mrs Howard, said "Everyone worked hard and we had a great time in spite of the wind and driving rain!".
