Geography trip with stunning weather / views

The Fairfield Geography department took record numbers of students (72) on a two-day non-residential trip to Brean Down and Bristol City Centre as part of their data collection for GCSE. The students and staff were treated to two days of superb weather.

On the first trip, students climbed to the top of Brean Down and conducted bi-polar surveys of the area to help decide whether it should be an AONB, like Mendip Hills to the east. Once we had collected our data, we stopped for lunch at Brean Down Fort before making our way back to get an ice cream.

On the second day, students completed surveys and questionnaires in Bristol City Centre to study how well the cycling infrastructure supported cyclists in the city. Students were divided into two groups and lead round different areas of the city before rendezvousing in Castle Park for lunch. In the afternoon, students asked members of the public some questionnaires before being let home. All-in-all, a very successful two days of Geographical Fieldwork!
