Our Natural Environment is about all living things and non-living things occurring naturally. This includes the interaction of all living species, climate, weather, and natural resources that affect human survival and economic activity.
East Worlington Parish covers an area of approximately 28 square kilometres. The majority of the land is used for farming and there are some woodland areas. The main water course is the Little Dart River and its tributaries with the Adworthy Brook forming part of the eastern boundary to the Parish and the River Dalch a southern boundary.
The valley, hill and moor landscape of the area was mainly created by the carboniferous rock of sandstone and shale being strongly folded during the Variscan orogeny period. This rock formation is overlaid with some loamy soil in the valley areas and clay soils in other areas. The height of land above sea level ranges from approximately 100 metres to just above 200 metres with natural resources from bluebell woods, water meadows, to culm land.
Our natural environment has wealth of woodland rich in bluebells. The best time to enjoy the displays is between late April and late May.
