Geography Field Trip to the Brecon Beacons

Geography Field Trip to the Brecon Beacons

During the Easter holidays, 17 pupils and six staff ventured into the Brecon Beacons to enrich the study of rivers, urban environments, mass movements, industrial redevelopment and, for the first time for many, geology.

The trip began with possibly the wettest day ever encountered by a team of geographers, with horizontal rain cutting short the fieldwork on the River Usk. However, the next three days saw perfect weather for collecting data on Swansea, studying the industrial heritage and change that has occurred in the city, and also for exploring Penwyllt quarry to discover that geology rocks!

We also had time for bowling, a waterfall walk and also to celebrate Mr Mason’s 30 years at Caterham School! Staff and pupils came home tired, but well prepared for the exams in the next three weeks!
