Diversions...



Images of Castleton area by Alan Parkinson and Simon Hathaway

Lesson 3 of my toolkit looks at the impact of a road closure on a settlement.
It is based on the closure of the road below Mam Tor near the Peak District settlement of Castleton.

At a session in Gloucester yesterday, I talked about the connection with the settlements in Cumbria which have been affected by the closure of bridges following the unprecedented rainfall in the area over the weekend. There is lots of potential here for exploring the impact of sudden change, and the long term nature of that change...

I have uploaded an old resource of mine which I developed for use around the same time, but which didn't make it into the toolkit.
This is a "most likely to" activity based in the same area of Castleton in the Peak District. I used this extract numerous times throughout my teaching career, and it found its way into many a textbook and mapskills task...

This is another extra edition for those who buy the book or have an interest in buying it...
The book is available to buy from the GA ONLINE SHOP.
