Grasmere Fieldwork

On Friday the 22nd of September 72 year 11 students undertook the second component of their fieldwork element. The purpose of this fieldwork was to investigate the impacts of tourism in a glaciated upland area. This involved looking at human and physical impacts as well as environmental.

The group got stuck into their work and despite some inclement weather from lunchtime onwards completed their work and are now in the process of preparing for the exam component through detailed presentation, interpretation and analysis.
