L4 Geography Field Trip to the Cotton Dell, Staffordshire

Posted: 15th June 2022

On Monday 13th June 2022, the Geography Department took L4 on a river studies trip to Cotton Dell in Staffordshire. In groups, students carried out a variety of tasks including; creating a geographical sketch and testing the speed of the water flowing in the river. The students also measured the depth and width of the river channel, the wetted perimeter area and the size and profile of the bedload in the river across two different sites.


Trips like these allow our students to visualise all of the information they are learning within school and provide vital first hand experience for our budding geographers. All in all a lovely day out.
