First things first ... this is an account of a trip to my school's field centre in Wales. I seem to remember it was a geography trip and that, despite my total ignorance of all things geographical, I was taken on the trip specifically so I could write the "official" account of the trip for the school magazine. As should already be apparent, this is not that official account!
Where the original text has become difficult to read (for example in the footnotes to this page), I have carried out a little surgery in Photoshop. I have, however, resisted all temptation to replace the original text with something better!
Oh, and despite the footnote to the contrary, most names have now been changed!
