On Monday 14th and Thursday 17th October, the Lower 4th travelled to Carding Mill Valley in Shropshire for their Geography fieldwork. In the morning, the students observed river processes at work and sketched the picturesque Lightspout Waterfall and the v-shaped valley and interlocking spurs in the river’s upper course. In the afternoon, girls put on their wellies and stepped into the stream to collect data on the river’s width, depth, gradient and velocity, and also measured the size of the rocks within the channel. Despite the cold weather, it was a very rewarding, challenging and successful trip!
