Geographers in Charlestown

On Thursday 29th of September,  Mr Buse and  Mr Banfield took our fantastic Year 10 Geographers to Charlestown and Carlyon Bay to investigate the research question: “What has caused the cliff slumping in various locations in the St Austell Bay area?”

Mr Buse explains: “We explored the erosional processes around the area and completed various surveys, including landform counts; cliff height, field sketches and environmental quality surveys.”

“The students were amazed to find out the extent of the cliff slumping – but also started to explore the effects this had on the local community which was really interesting.”
