could Greenwich be described as a honeypot?

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Introduction The aim of my coursework is to identify the areas in Greenwich, which are or can be labelled a honeypot. I am going to achieve this by collecting factual data that will accept or reject my Hypotheses. I have five hypotheses, which I am hoping will clearly show which areas in Greenwich are honeypots. The data was collected on May 9th 2008 By the year ten geography students. My five hypotheses are: 1. If Greenwich is a honeypot, there will be many pedestrians in an area, the area will be busy. This is because if the area is a honeypot, lots of tourists will go there to see the attractions and to see what it is like. 2. Another way I can find out which areas in Greenwich are a honeypot, is by looking at the conditions of the environment. I predict that if the area is a honeypot, the surrounding area will be clean and tidy. I think this because if the area is a honeypot it would be good for the local economy so the council will try to make the area look as nice as possible so that tourists will come back. ...read more.

Middle

Some examples of honeypots in the UK are; Bowness-on-Windermere (the lake district, a national park) and Swan age (Dorset, a coastal town.) Methodology Our year 10 geography class travelled to Greenwich on May 9th 2008 to carry out coursework which would find out which areas in Greenwich are honeypots. We travelled to Greenwich via tube and DLR. After we arrived at the Cutty Sark (meeting point) we split into groups of around four or five and we were given an area in which to conduct data, either supporting or rejecting our hypotheses. We arrived at our site around 11.00, when we started our pedestrian count. 1. To make our pedestrian count fair the groups all started the pedestrian count at the same time 11.00 and we all counted for ten minutes. I carried out the pedestrian count because I wanted to find information which would lead me to find out which areas of Greenwich are honeypots, by counting the number of people walking past a certain point, in this case a gate, within the allocated area (St Mary's Gate.) There where people at the 13 different sites all counting people at the same time, thus making the count more fair. ...read more.

Conclusion

However the questionnaire could not be truly fair because when asked, some people, presumably tourists, said that they did not speak English, so couldn't reply. Also at different times of the year eg, summer holidays, there are different peaks in the number of tourists. 4. 5. I looked at pricing in cafes and bars for my fourth hypothesis because I wanted to see whether rent prices in Greenwich were higher in honeypot areas. My fourth hypothesis is that rent in honeypot areas of Greenwich would be more expensive. I took all these prices quickly in a notebook so that when I was ready I could put it all into a table later. I got the pricing by looking in estate agents windows and also got some later from websites (listed below.) I took the price of three standard three-bedroom terraced houses and calculated the average for five different areas; north, south, east, west and central . I chose this type of house because it is common. The good thing about this method is that it more fair because it is the same food and beverage items that I am comparing. The bad thing though is that the houses are all different from eachother ?? ?? ?? ?? 15/7/08 Greenwich - Coursework Emma Rafferty ...read more.
