A Level Geographers carried out a range of residential fieldwork in the Brecon Beacons and Bristol last week. In the city they investigated cultural geography and the impact of regeneration projects in the Temple District and Harbourside and contrasted this with the gentrification of St. Pauls and Montpelier. Pupils carried out a range of primary data collection activities including questionnaires, perceptions surveys and emotion mapping.
On the second day pupils investigated the hypotheses that the landscape of the Brecon Beacons reflects that of a glaciated upland area. They were able to see corries and headwalls as well as a range of lateral and terminal moraine deposits. A highlight was the hike to the glacial lake at Cwm Llwch adjacent to Pen-y-Fan as well as a trip to the National Park Visitor centre to enjoy traditional Welsh cakes!
