Mock Field Work - Malham

Extracts from this document...


Year 10 Mock Field Work Malham By Camille Foncel 10Y Contents Page Introduction - Page 3 Method - Page 5 Results - Page 7 Analysis and Graphs - Page 14 Conclusion - Page 23 Introduction Malham has 150 inhabitants and is located in North Yorkshire, in the southern region of the Yorkshire Dales National Park approximately 6 miles from Settle and 11 miles from Skipton. It is a small village in the Pennines, surrounded by limestone dry-stone walls, and with a stream running right through the middle of the village. Malham is one of the most popular villages in the Yorkshire Dales and attracts tourists, geologists and naturalists. The main attractions to visit are Malham Cove and Gordale Scar. Malham has been a settlement for at least a thousand years. One hundred years ago, Malham was a place of mills and mines. Now, hill farms and tourism are the main activities. Malham has a National Park Centre and plenty of guest houses. Two pubs, the Buck Inn and Lister Arms and shops and caf�s are found here. In addition there is a Youth Hostel and a Field Studies Centre. The majority of people living in Malham are farmers and workers who own the shops and accommodation e.g. Inns, pubs and caf�s. There is only one school in Malham and therefore there are few families with children besides the families that work in Malham. Generally the people that live in Malham are the people that workers and farmers. In this piece of coursework I am going to investigate the hypothesis 'Malham is entirely dependent upon Tourism for its survival.' This means that Malham depends only on Tourism for financial support and to keep Malham going so it can survive; without Tourism Malham wouldn't be able to survive. If I was going to accept this hypothesis I would expect Malham to be quite crowded and busy but sparse in villages else where. ...read more.

This means that over 70% of people that we asked lived elsewhere. This suggests that they were tourists and visiting Malham; this favors my hypothesis 'Malham is entirely dependent upon Tourism for its survival.' ...read more.


lot of them are tourists or people visiting Malham, they are obviously attracted by the tourist services and if Malham these services then it depends on tourism in order to gain money from them. Furthermore 1/2 the people living in Malham work or own a business relating to tourism and therefore depend on tourism. However there are also farms in Malham and 1/2 the workers in Malham work on farms. This implies that Malham also relies on farming as well on tourism. This is why the hypothesis is only partly correct because does rely on tourism but it also relies on farming. If I has unlimited time to do this project I would do a continued analysis and group my results together; this would make it easier to understand and explain. I would also make averages with my results also making them easier to understand. In addition I would carry out further test and questionnaire on Malham throughout the year. This is because I would then have fair results and they wouldn't be biased e.g. I would collect results for summer and winter or when it was raining or sunny or when it was a working day or holiday. This is because when I did my investigation it was a working day and all the children were at school and therefore there were mainly older people visiting Malham and I was not getting the true picture about tourism in Malham. If I was to carry out test and questionnaires throughout the year then my result would be fair and I would my results would be more accurate. To further my investigation I would study the hypotheses:- * "Most people come to Malham for walking." * "Most people who come to Malham travel a long distance" * "Mostly old people visit Malham" This is because from studying this hypothesis I have found some evidence to suggest that these hypotheses might be true to a certain extent and I would like to see whether they are. ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

Overall rating:
3 out of 5 stars.
The structure is clear and the author has clearly attempted to address all the aspects of coursework requirements. However, each part is at a fairly basic level of knowledge and understanding. There is no deep analysis or explanation. The hypothesis itself is fairly basic and so a lot more discussion is needed to be able to access high marks.
A good variety of data presentation techniques have been used, but again these are all basic.
