Is East Leake A Town Or A Village?

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Introduction and Aims East Leake is a settlement, which is located 4.85 miles North of Loughborough, and 8. 55 miles South of Nottingham. This is clearly shown in the map below: East Leake is only about 10-15 minutes away from Loughborough this means that there is easy access to Loughborough train station. The train station has links to all major stations including London, which would take around 1 hour and 50 minutes to get to. East Leake also has access to the number 1 bus route to Loughborough and Nottingham. In the table below I will show distances from East Leake to all villages used within the survey. Village/ Town Distance from East Leake (Miles) Gotham 3 Costock 1.3 Wysall 3.4 Barton 13.5 Clifton 9.6 Kegworth 8.1 Loughborough 8.1 West Leake 2.1 Normanton 5 From the question 'Is East Leake a town or a village' I feel that I should be trying to collect and present information to prove whether East Leake is a town or a village. To do this I am going to use information discovered from the field trip; this includes location maps, traffic surveys and a questionnaire. I will also use photos from the field trip and annotate them to show and explain my ideas. ...read more.

Using the census website I was able to get access to population figures for the Leake Area (West Leake, East Leake, Costock etc) this was useful information to compare settlement figures. Questionnaire Whilst on the field trip each pupil had to ask people to fill in a questionnaire, this data was turned into a graph. Next I will show the results using various graphs and charts, this will be the opinion of residents and visitors to the settlement. This will be evidence to answer the "Is East Leake A Village Or A Town" question. As you can see on the road map on the next page the majority of shops and services are low order. This would indicate East Leake was a village because it lack enough high order shops and services Data Presentation Now I will annotate my pictures of the village to add to the evidence to answer the question "Is East Leake A Town Or A ...read more.

Conclusion

This is very conclusive evidence East Leake is a village because of the strong majority of people who thought East Leake was a village. Also the fact that people had to leave the settlement would show there weren't the needed facilities and shops needed to keep people in the village, therefore people had to leave the settlement to go to nearby towns. If I were to repeat this piece of coursework I would visit other villages and complete the survey to compare against East Leake, I would also visit Loughborough and complete street maps and questionnaires on the area to compare against East Leake.
