Last week, 26 Year 12 Geology students visited the beautiful Lake District for their annual field trip.

The students, accompanied by 4 members of staff, visited a variety of locations including Ingleton and the infamous 'White Scar Cave'. They had different tasks to perform while on this visit, including geological field sketching, collecting data using geological instruments and reading the landscape to uncover the last 500 million years of geological history! During their studies they found evidence for everything from past volcanic eruptions, warm shallow seas and hot, dry deserts to recent glacial ice, carving out today's landscape.

Despite the weather being rather inclement for June, it remained dry and the students all enjoyed their experience.
