Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All


Tea Room 2004

  Llanrwst, A market town only a few minutes drive from Rhyd y Creuau, has a long history of flooding. Here students can discover the physical and human characteristics that make this area prone to flooding, consider the impact of previous flood events and evaluate the success of the Flood Managment scheme in place in the town. Students can also map flood risk within the town, comparing their fieldwork findings to the Environment Agencies flood risk areas in the field using ESRI ArcGisOnline.


Supporting documents including a Google Earth Tour, A video introducing you to Llanrwst,possible fieldwork, use of GIS and classroom handouts can be found here.
