A GROUP of second year A level geography students from East Norfolk Sixth Form have just returned from the annual field study trip to Blencathra in the Lake District where they experienced the extremes of weather for which the area is famous.

The first day might well have been a literal washout, as 24 hours of rain had made rivers impassable and conditions downright dangerous in places. In spite of this, the day was turned around to positive effect and the switch to lowland glaciation and peri-glaciation was very useful.

The other days were benign by comparison and upland glaciation studies at Easedale and tourism and recreation issues at Cat Bells went smoothly and effectively in ideal conditions.

Mike Spragg, who leads the earth sciences department at the college, said: “Students were invigorated by the scenic splendour, the fresh air and the pleasant social surroundings!”
