909 Map-Making Wells Cathedral Independent School Somerset WCS

Year 7 Cartographers Map The Combe

As part of their Thursday afternoon ‘909’ activities programme, a group of budding Year 7 cartographers visited The Combe, a nineteenth-century secret garden which lies to the north of the School.

Divided into small teams, the pupils were presented with their challenge: to produce as detailed a map of the area as possible, complete with symbols, colour coding, and a key. While each team’s map-maker planned the design, their hardy researchers scampered off into the (manicured) wilderness before reporting back on what they had seen.

Amidst the beautiful and inspiring surroundings, they produced a series of imaginative and informative maps, certain to help any visitor to the garden!
