Data presentation. Impact surveys 10. Data presentation. Q4 11. Data presentation. Q5 12. Conclusion and Evaluation The aim of my study is to find out if Norsworthy Bridge is a honeypot. There are a few questions I will be answering to help me decide if it is or not. * Is Norsworthy Bridge a honeypot? * What type of honeypot is it? * What conflicts are there and what impact the visitors have? * How is Norsworthy Bridge managed to reduce visitor impact but allow its continuing use? (Is it well managed?) * How can it be managed in the future? The area of study is Norsworthy Bridge, it is an area of great natural beauty. Norsworthy Bridge is a site next to Burrator reservoir where people of the local area flock to, to enjoy this site for a number of activities such as, cycling, walking, dog walking etc. But does this mean it is a honeypot? Attached fig 1 is a general location map of the area. A honeypot is a site of historical interest or natural beauty that large amounts of people visit. At a honeypot you may find the following, Car park Attractive scenery Toilets Wildlife Ice cream vans Signs Souvenir shops Busses Picnic areas Rock climbing Campsites Museums Information LOTS OF PEOPLE Some of the countries better known and larger honeypots are places like Bowness, Windermere, Lands End, and Stone Henge etc. ...read more.


What type of honeypot is it? As you can probably tell from the pictures above, if Norsworthy Bridge is a honeypot then it would more likely be a site of natural beauty than historical buildings. There is only one building at Norsworthy Bridge and isn't very noticeable. There are many footpaths going through woods and open country filled with wild flowers, trees and animals. 3. What conflicts are there and what impact the visitors have?

Figs, 2, 3, 4 and 5 is the data that I collected. As I walked along the path I stopped every 10-15 metres to collect the data. I made notes on impact and how it has been managed. ...read more.


This is helpful, as you could easily get lost in the network of footpaths. At Norsworthy Bridge there are a number of footpaths but each one has its own symbol so you don't stray off onto other paths. 5. How can it be managed in the future? As I was walking around Norsworthy Bridge I noticed that there was quite a bit of litter and dog mess. To reduce these problems there could be a few bins and doggy bins for people to place their waste in. The bins should be placed in positions so that they can be seen but without spoiling the views of scenes of natural beauty. I have come to the conclusion that Norsworthy Bridge is a honeypot because even though the weather was rainy there were still quite a few people there. Along with its many visitors and its natural beauty Norsworthy Bridge hasn't much to offer in the way of toilets, information centres etc. although in nice weather there are probably a few ice cream vans positioned around the area. Picnic sites: Although there are no designated picnic sites there are open or cleared areas of land where you could have a picnic. To improve the majority of my results I could have returned to the area on a sunnier day, when there would be more people. This would help because I could do the visitor counts again and record more activities and their conflicts. The resources that I used for this piece of coursework are: * Encarta * Internet * Britannica encyclopedias ...read more.
