Upper Sixth field trip to Porlock Bay and Minehead WCS Wells Cathedral School Independent Prep Somerset England

Upper Sixth field trip to Porlock Bay and Minehead

In March, Upper Sixth Geographers travelled to Minehead to analyse the hard engineering defences constructed to protect the town from coastal flooding including seawalls, stone groynes and beach replenishment. From there they travelled to Porlock Bay to study the cross and long profile changes in beach material, and to analyse the radically different management of this section of coast where managed realignment is in place. They ended the trip at Porlock Weir on the western end of the bay where the beach is no longer protected against movement eastwards.

The data they collected will help them to understand the nature of shingle beaches and the issues involved in managing the coast.
