This week, groups of school pupils have again been gathering information about the local environment as part of their local studies projects. This site has a rich collection of local information. All students are free to use anything contained on these pages. Click here for more details.

It's that time of the year again. Loads of school children doing their local studies. Well, it's all here on this site. And we've made a special section bringing together all the information you will need. Happy studying. Click here for this site's Local Studies section.

It's local study time again with pupils at local schools working on their projects about local history, geology and the environment. This site has a rich resource of material to help those working on their local studies projects. Click here for more information.

When I was at school (Queen Elizabeth, Barnet) many years ago I did a survey of land use changes in farming since the last map showing land use (pasture or crops etc) had been printed, comparing it with the then (1960) current state of affairs.  I interviewed farmers as to why the changes had ocurred and wrote it up for my A level optional geography paper.  The area I covered was mostly around South Mimms.
Does anyone know what would have happened to such research?  I suppose they may have been thrown out once they had been marked.  It took me many hours to do and would be quite historical now.  I got 90 something % for it so it must have been quite thorough.
Would love to hear from anyone who knows where I could find out if such papers were kept.
