An Investigation into Shopping patterns in horncastle

Extracts from this document...


Introduction My name is Mokbul Hussain and I have done some investigation in Horncastle. On Friday 8 may the geography class and we went to the Horncastle town. It was a nice and hot day. We investigated as a pair and we have found out lot information. Horncastle is a town in Lincolnshire (in the middle of England towards the east coast).The town of Horncastle is an urban area that is larger than a village but smaller than a city. Unless Horncastle grows to a size. Horncastle sits at the crossroads of two of Lincolnshire's major roads: the A158 runs west-east, joining the county town of Lincoln with the resort of Skegness on the Lincolnshire coast; the A153 joins Louth in the north with Sleaford and Grantham in the south. These two roads meet at the Bull Ring in the centre of Horncastle. The A158 through Horncastle becomes particularly busy during the summer holidays, as holidaymakers travel to and from Skegness. To alleviate the pressure on the town centre caused by this traffic, Horncastle is home to a 'hub' for the InterConnect rural bus service. Regular buses run to Lincoln, Skegness, and across the Wolds. ...read more.

This pie chart is showing how many transports Going OUT of the town centre Going INTO the town centre Litter Litter is an important factors my hypothesis to see if the outer town is a better environment than the inner town. The amounts of litter can vary the living standard which will affect house costs, as if there is a lot of litter in the area the housing prices will decrease and conversely the less the litter or no litter the housing prices will increase. Litter is not an attraction which will decrease the amounts of tourists visiting the town. To find out I will account how many pieces of litter I see on my roads that I have chosen on about a thirty meter stretch. Obviously the road that has the most litter is the worst road according to litter. I am doing this because it will help me find out my hypothesis (outer town better than inner town) and also litter is important to the environment, also litter is a sign of bad people in the area and this can lead to crime.
