Our journey to the most remote place we have ever visited started with a train from Kings Cross Station on Thursday and finished on very rural Yorkshire roads through fields of sheep and lambs. The field centre reminded us of the Harry Potter set (some of the scenes were filmed in the area) and our first activity was to climb up the limestone crag where the scenery took our breath away. Throughout the three days we collected data on meadows, hills and rivers and trekked through an amazing peat bog. A daily highlight came at 3pm: cake time! We also learnt about population monitoring of small mammals and caught field mice that we named Arnold, Winfrey and Louis. Absolutely exhausted, we made the journey back to Settle station on Saturday where we finished writing up our practical work on the train going back to city life.
