Lower Sixth Geographers Visit Cornwall

School Trip

Cornwall Geography Field Trip 

On Sunday 12th October the L6 geography groups travelled to Cornwall. First all we visited the well know village Boscastle, to study the horrific flood in 2004. After recording the river’s characteristics and interviewing locals, we went to the small Cornish town of Padstow (or Padstein as it's affectionately known) where we enjoyed Rick Stein’s fish and chips. It was a short journey along very narrow country lanes to the youth hostel in Treyarnon and we spent some time on the beach and admiring the sun set before retiring to bed.

The following day, we went to the Eden Project where we had an interesting talk about rebranding the Cornish area. Then we had some time to investigate and explore the Eden Project to carry out relevant fieldwork for our AS course including soundscapes and pedestrian counts. After that, we visited the town of St Austell for more fieldwork, before returning to Talbot Heath after an exhausting two days.
