UVI Geography Trip to the Lake District

Posted: 10/11/17

The UVI geographers spent the School Birthday weekend in the Lake District. The girls spent two days investigating different geographical phenomena in the field. A trip down the Borrowdale valley measuring glaciated landforms gave girls hints as to how the landscape might have looked 15,000 years ago. The next day, by interviewing tourists and locals in villages inside and outside of the national park, girls were able to understand how tourism affects settlements in the Lakes; particularly relevant given that the national park has just been awarded UNESCO World Heritage Status. This was also the first outing for the school drone, which allowed us to get some stunning aerial footage of glaciated landforms like moraine, eskers and drumlins.
