On Tuesday, Upper Fourth geographers travelled to the Peak District, Derbyshire. Students spent time in Castleton collecting information which will help them to assess the extent to which tourism has a positive influence on the village. They had time to explore some of the tourist shops and services that Castleton has to offer whilst enjoying the excellent weather! They also had the opportunity to visit the well known tourist attraction ‘Treak Cliff Cavern’ – an underground cave which is partly natural and has been partly created by humans mining for ‘Blue John’ – a semi-precious mineral which is unique to this area. Finally, the groups took a short walk up Mam Tor also known as the ‘shivering mountain’ which has experienced a series of landslides in the near and distant past due to its weak geological structure. The girls worked diligently and with great enthusiasm to collect excellent data ready for their analysis back at school.
