Hampstead Heath

Hampstead Heath: An Educational Resource

This resource is principally designed to support GCSE Geography map skills, through map work exercises on Hampstead Heath, and it also includes information about many aspects of geology on the Heath. Questions to answer along the orienteering routes aid the pupils to keep on track.

Additional information is given on the natural history of the Heath, the artist Constable, and a historical summary. The orienteering exercises finish at Kenwood House, which is open to visitors during normal school hours.
