Quarndon, Allestee Park and Mackworth
This half day field trip is designed to provide an opportunity for you to ‘ground truth’ the locations that you will have been working on in practicals using air photographs. The area studied is local to the University and includes locations such as Quorndon, Allestree Park, Mackworth Estate and the ‘University Quarter’. Both physical and cultural/human features of the local area are investigated. The fieldtrip also provides an opportunity for you to become familiar with the geography of the northern and western edge of the city and the immediate surroundings of the University.
