During the last week of January, A Level and GCSE Geologists from Barry Comprehensive School completed their field visits in preparation for their Geology coursework.
The sixth formers spent two days braving the wet weather in the Brecon Beacons studying the geology of the Ystradfellte valley. They visited a number of spectacular waterfalls, looking into the rock formations and interpreting the variety of past environments in the area.
he GCSE group travelled to Broad Haven in Pembrokeshire and studied the varied geology of a number of coastal sites. This included ancient lava flows and volcanic ash deposits at Marloes Sands and old mine workings at Broad Haven and Solva. Even Storm Henry couldn’t stop us!
Both visits were a real success despite the challenges presented by the weather. Both groups collected notes and data that will allow them to successfully complete their coursework.
