Fossil-hunting Highbridge students in coastline study



A group of students from Highbridge's King Alfred School have this week been studying fossils and rock forms along the Bristol Channel coast.

The Year 7 Geography students took part in several day visits to Kilve beach, where they studied the physical landscape and searched for fossils and saw other coastal landforms.

"The group also travelled to Brean to sketch the wide variety of coastal defences found there," a spokeswoman for the school told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

"The students will now spend the last weeks of term writing up their findings and thinking about how the Somerset coastline could be managed in the future."
