Castle Head

The environs of Castle Head provide an unparalleled range of habitats including salt marshes, sand dunes, tidal rivers, freshwater lakes and rivers, moorlands, high fell, limestone pavement and cliffs, and varieties of woodland and grassland. For geographers there are opportunities to study upland glaciation, soils, ecosystems, agriculture, settlements and hydrology. The area has a long history of human influence and is ideal for inquiry and issues-based approaches; for example, National Park management, nuclear power and sustainable development.
