Siccar Point Field Excursion Preview


At Siccar Point there is a steep descent over a grassy slope to the shore. The path is often muddy, sometimes icy and frequently made hazardous by strong winds. Although students are encouraged to help each other they are not compelled to descend.

This small group of students elected not to descend because of strong wind. They are sitting at about 25m above sea level.
