Our Year 12’s geography students had a fascinating field trip to the Allerton Project and Hanson Cement works in Ketton on Wednesday 13 June. The morning was spent investigating farming practices and how land management can affect the water and carbon cycles at a local scale. As part of this visit, students became tree huggers and collected data on carbon stocks in two areas of woodland. In the afternoon, we donned hi-vis jackets and hard hats and visited Ketton cement works to investigate the carbon footprint from cement production.
A highlight was getting up close to the kiln and experiencing the intense radiating heat!
