Y8 visit Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door

On Thursday 8th June, year 8 geographers travelled to the spectacular World Heritage Sites of Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. The girls spent the day investigating coastal processes that were happening along the coastline, as well as assessing how well tourism was being managed at this honeypot site. The rain held off for us, but some strong gusts of wind resulted in lots of chasing of paper across the cliff top! We also spent time at the Lulworth Cove visitor centre, hearing a presentation about the management of the site. Finally, a day by the sea was not complete without chips and some very large ice creams! The girls worked incredibly hard during the day and will use the data they have collected to write up their findings about the sites in class.
