Field Work

Our GCSE geographers spent three days in South Wales at the Margam Discovery Centre. Located within Margam Park, the centre is part of an 850 acre country estate situated on the narrow coastal plain and southern slopes of Mynydd Margam.  The Park covers a remarkably diverse and varied landscape making it a particular draw for geographers.

The first day was spent studying coastal processes and particularly the formation of dunes while on the second day, the group were able to follow the River Ogmore, from upper course waterfalls to the mouth of the river where it flows into the Bristol Channel. The final day was spent in the seaside resort of Porthcawl collecting data on the effects of tourism on the town.
