Geography field trip to Malham

The Lower Sixth Geographers had an extremely successful field trip to Malham in the Yorkshire Dales just before half term. The five days included a stroll up Malham Cove and across to the Tarn, a visit to the market town of Skipton to investigate flood management, a tour around Lower Winskill Farm to look at the difficulties of farming in National Parks and upland areas, a study of four rural settlements across the Yorkshire Dales, a journey around the Dales looking at the glacial features of the landscape and finally a trip to Ingleborough Caves to see the incredible limestone geology of the area. The students worked extremely hard whilst on the trip and a huge amount of knowledge was gained to assist them with their A Level Geography course.
