After a three-hour train journey (+ the driver’s legal break!), our first stop was Keswick, where we investigated rebranding in the area. We braved public questionnaires and learnt about some interesting scales for measuring environmental quality, such as investigating the smell scape or mapping our mood. The most memorable moment from our whole trip came on the second day whilst climbing up Easedale. We saw glacial features we had previously only ever seen in geography textbooks: hanging valleys, striations and roche moutonnées, just to name a few! As we reached the top, we were blown away by Easedale Tarn. The view was absolutely breathtaking. Before returning to the centre, we visited Grasmere and got to taste its famous gingerbread, and finished the day with a beautiful evening walk. Thank you to the staff at Blencathra Centre, and to Ms Costello and Mrs Abbott for accompanying us on the trip – we all had the best time!
