Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

1997 Daniel Moncrieff, North Wales - FSC Slapton

The fieldtrip was a key factor in why I decided to choose geography as an A-level subject over history. We went to Slapton Ley, in deepest darkest Devon.

I am also fairly sure I choose geography because it seemed like an easy subject. It was only at Slapton, as we visited Prawle Point, the River Harbourne and the Start Bay coast that I slowly realised how complex and interesting geography really was. It is one of the most memorable learning experiences I have had, and ultimately it was fundamental to why I choose to read geography at university. That set me on the path in turn to work for the FSC.
