Welcome to Higher Still Geography!
This resource, focusing on Upland Limestone, is aimed at Higher Still students. The site uses the Yorkshire Dales National Park as a case study to explore both the physical and social geography of a limestone area. You can work through the site in the suggested order, using the links on each page, or navigate your own path using the bar on the left of the screen.

Land Use: Find out how the land is used and where conflict can arise. Listen to the views in the People Bank or try to resolve a conflict at the Round Table.

Surface Features: Learn to recognise the features of a limestone landscape and travel back through time to understand how they were formed.

Underground Features: Enter the underground world of limestone cave systems. Find out how the distinctive limestone features are created.

Mapwork: Are you confident you can recognise a limestone landscape on an Ordnance Survey map? You will be, after completing this section!

Field Drawing: Improve your practical skills with our helpful guide to field drawings.

Revision: Test yourself with our exam style questions written by a Higher Still examiner. Don't sit your exam without looking at our revision hints.

Webguide: We've hunted through the World Wide Web to find the best limestone resources for you.
