A Level Geologists reach the summit!
On Friday 29th November the Year 13 geology students attended their first of two pieces of A Level fieldwork. The trip included two sites; the first visiting Roadford reservoir and dam to discuss the engineering geology involved in building such an impressive and useful structure. The second site took us to the village of Minions, where students plotted an igneous crystal size transect between the famous Hurlers and the impressive and totally naturally formed Cheesewring. Students have spent some time studying igneous petrology and the processes, such as unloading joints, that have led to the formation of these amazing structures.
