Year 10 Geography Field Trip to Nettlecombe, Somerset

Our Year 10 Geography students had a wonderful field trip on Sunday and Monday at Nettlecombe Field Studies Centre near Williton in Somerset.

The Centre is a beautiful manor house. On Sunday, after an early coach trip to the centre, the students followed the River Horner from Luccombe on Exmoor to Horner. They measured the width, depth and flow of the river at 5 different points along its route. The river then flows past Porlock into Porlock Bay near Hurlstone Point on the Bristol Channel. After dinner the students went into the classroom to disseminate the information they had gained during the day. On the Monday the students had a further classroom session where they learnt about the re-generation of Taunton which was then followed with a field trip to the town.
