    Brecon – Geography Field Trip

    Last week (12 October) Year 11 geographers travelled to Brecon, S Wales.  

    As well as gathering data about the River Tarrell, they went down Big Pit, Blaenavon's last coalmine which closed in 1980, and walked behind the wonderful waterfalls at Sgwd Eira. 

    Weatherwise, it was a week of two halves. The first group of girls benefited from autumnal sunshine. The second group gained first-hand knowledge of the flooding hazard as Storm Callum beat down, dumping 182mm of rain in 48 hours with winds over 70mph, and S Wales' worst flooding for 30 years.  The rivers burst their banks, roads were closed, and houses were flooded.

    The Camden Girls persisted!
