On Friday 15th June, a group of enthusiastic Lower Fifth geographers travelled down to Dorset for a weekend of fieldwork and fun on the Jurassic Coast. We visited several sites around the area, including Chesil Beach, Durdle Door and the sand dunes in Studland, where we could see many different features that we had discussed in class, and looked in more detail at the geology. It was really interesting to see the processes for ourselves, as well as experiencing some beautiful views.
We also spent some time in the picturesque, rural villages of Puddletown and Corfe, where we spoke to some of the locals. There were also many opportunities to taste some of Dorset’s finest local produce – ice cream! It was lovely to return to The Swanage Centre at the end of each day, where we had the chance to swim, play sports and hang out with our friends. The weather mostly stayed pleasant and we had a really enjoyable and interesting weekend away.
