River Brock Geography

As part of of their Key Stage 4 Curriculum Year 10 BCHS Geography students took part in a field trip to the scenic River Brock at Wadacre.

The River Brock commencing its journey on Fair Snape Fell, the infant River Brock runs beneath the Bleasdale Circle before continuing via Claughton and Bilsborrow to St Michael’s On Wyre, where it joins the River Wyre.

A significant length of River Brock forms the northern boundary of Preston, Lancashire.

The students looked at the cross-profile of the River Brock, testing the width and depth of the river from upper to lower course. The Geography students thoroughly enjoyed the investigation and made the most of the glorious weather.

The morning investigations were followed by an enjoyable afternoon of competitive orienteering.
