Girls from the Lower Sixth visited Shropshire as part of their AS Geography studies to embark on data collection for the fieldwork and research unit of their course. They spent the day studying rural regeneration and rebranding in the area.
Their visit took them via Bewdley to see first-hand the impact of the recent flooding in the area. The girls watched Environment Agency personnel removing the flood defences. They then travelled on to Bishops Castle and Ludlow where they investigated how successful Ludlow is as a food destination and questioned whether Bishops Castle needs rebranding.
The girls also explored the extent to which Bishops Castle and Ludlow are examples of clone towns and considered whether there is a relationship between streetscape and sense of community.
