Field Trip to Ingleton 1962

Looks like Mr Stockwell left centre.  Paul Rivett (?) and Roger Cole over to the right.  The 1963 College Magazine said:

"This year's [Summer 1962? - Ed.] geographical and geological field trip took us back to the Craven District of Yorkshire. Accommodation was provided by the Youth Hostels at Dent, Ingleton and Stainforth; these showed great extremes, from the rather spartan oil-lit gloom of Dent to the comparative luxury of Stainforth.

The weather on the whole did not treat us very kindly, although wet and misty mornings usually gave way to fine afternoons. Nevertheless, both individually and as a party we were able to explore the superb karst scenery of the district, from the high wind-swept summits of Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent to the well developed caverns under the mountains. Full day excursions took us to the head of the Aire Valley around Malham, and also to the Lake District, where we made a prolonged stop at Windermere Lakeside.

We feel that the main aims of the expedition were adequately covered: to introduce some pupils to the hills for the first time; to enable members of the Vth and VIth Forms to write from personal experience of regions very different from their home environment; and finally to have an enjoyable time in spite of rain, train spotters and blistered feet."
