Y12 Geog visit Quantock Hills

The Year 12 Geography students went on a fieldtrip to the Quantock Hills. On the first day we were up very early and went to the source of the river Holford where we started at a place called Dead Woman’s Ditch (not as scary as it sounds) and then walked the entire length of the river. We stopped in the middle course of the river and collected data on infiltration rates. We then continued on our way to the mouth of the river at Kilve Beach, about 7km away. We stayed overnight and completed the analysis of results and the conclusion and evaluation of the investigation. The next day we headed back to Stroud and collected information looking at the character of Stroud, which supports one of our A Level topics, Changing Places. All in all a great trip was had by all.
