LOWER SIXTH GEOGRAPHY STUDENTS SPENT TIME OUT IN BRECON AND THE SURROUND AREAS YESTERDAY COLLECTING DATA IN THEIR LOCAL STUDY AREA

They started off with a walk through the fringes of the town and up to the Slwch, an accessible peak and ancient fort which gives one of the most impressive views of the whole town.
