On 13/12/2021 we identified that this resource may be slightly outdated:

This resource uses a park map which is now out of date. Teachers can download a new map from the park website.


Following their visit to Robin Hill, students will produce a sketch map of Robin Hill, depending on the needs of the user. They will then compare a sketch map to an aerial photograph and transfer the features. As an extension activity, pupils will have to answer a range of questions, using scale.
