On Tuesday 24th January, 25 Year 12 Geography students went up to the chilly but nevertheless stunning setting of Stanage Edge in the Peak District to conduct fieldwork.

The aim was to investigate the significance of the peat bogs there as a store of carbon and their importance in mitigating climate change. The students were resolute and good-humoured in the face of difficult conditions and were not afraid to (quite literally in some cases) get stuck in.
