One of the great things about geography at Dale Fort is that you get to go to some of the best and most interesting places . Here we visit The Preseli Mountains to study The Afon Synfynwy (translation: The river who runs back up the slope to the church where the goat is tied to the tree with the wasp’s nest on the 3rd bough from the top by the church with the wobbly pew at the back)
More geography at Dale Fort. This one is about rebranding in the interesting town of Milford Haven (Aberdaugleddau, translation: The lovely town by the sea, very close to Dale Fort, with the llamas that is easily the best place to do urban rebranding). (You might wish to read the blog and check the veracity of this translation).
St. Davids is the smallest city in the UK but it’s so interesting and attractive that it gets huge numbers of tourists. Many of them are pilgrims come to worship at the huge Norman cathedral. Many come for the ice cream and still more for the beaches and the surfing and the sailing. What’s wrong with these people? They should be coming to do Crowded Coasts at Dale Fort. Dale Fort Tutor Kim Houkes shows us how it’s done.
Has longshore drift ever been more stimulating? Possibly not. Find out for yourself here:
