The Helvellyn Range is located in the English Lake District in NW England. This virtual field trip provides an opportunity to explore the core area, focussing on Grisedale, Red Tarn and Helvellyn itself. Mountain glaciers were last present during the Younger Dryas (12,900 – 11,700 years ago), although the classic landforms of glacial erosion that are present developed over multiple periods of glaciation during the Quaternary. A range of non-glacial landforms are present, including those associated with periglacial, fluvial and slope failures.
The imagery was mostly acquired in May 2017, although the Grisedale imagery dates from May 2014.
In order to support the ongoing development of this site, it would be really helpful if you could let me know why and how you use the resource. I’d also appreciate hearing any ideas you may have for improvements. Thank you!
This website allows you to explore glaciers and glaciated landscapes using virtual field trips. High quality, 360 degree interactive panoramas (panospheres) allow you to look all around and zoom in on features of interest – a bit like Google Streetview ©.
