Our landscape & its evolution

Yr Wyddfa

The British Isles has some of the most varied and amazing landscapes in the world. We have some of the oldest as well as the youngest rocks - which all give the the landscape its shape from mountains to fenland and from gentle downs to the "downed valleys" of the south west.

The universe, our landscape & heritage.

The world we live in

The more I travelled the more I wondered how the landscapes I visited had evolved into the features around me - and what will happen to them in future?. The idea that much of the land had been under the sea (and may return there) continental movement had buckled landscapes to make mountains and these had been scraped by glaciers ... all of this was never really covered at school and increasingly intrigued me for a number of years.
