Overview

Snowdonia presents the perfect location for a case study of a deglaciated environment, and highlights the sheer impact within a small geographical area.  A visit here is well-suited to GCSE, AS and A2 level studies, as a range of text book glacial and periglacial landforms will aid student understanding, and will enable them to carry out a wide range of fieldwork activities and surveys.
