Longshore Drift

Discovery Session -  Longshore Drift

Based at Sheringham, a more in-depth study of coastal erosion, taking a closer look at differing processes as well as how the fetch contributes to the development of longshore drift. With measuring poles, we examine the beach sediment trapped around the groynes and plot graphs back at Hilltop to look at the overall affect the sea has on the direction of movement.


We are most known for our ‘Out of the classroom’ outlook on studying. We have always used local locations and environments to bring student into direct contact with geographical or environmental issues in a fun way, giving opportunities or discovery.
