Following this I want you to think about the town you live in. Using google Earth, I would like you to explore your local area thinking about the land-use pattern (urban/rural) and what is nearby. Use your own address or the schools as a starting point.
If you have any relatives who have lived in Castleton/Rochdale for a long time, I would like you to ask them (if safe to do so) what has changed over the years in relation to geography. E.g is there a building where it used to be a park? Was there any greenbelt land? Did Rochdale used to be more rural than urban?
