I found these exercises helpful in selecting and learning about my site.
All information I gathered was useful. I enjoyed learning interesting facts about my area. I feel that the exercise that was most beneficial to my knowledge was researching the history of Tattenham Corner. I never had much interest in horse racing so it was great to find out that Tattenham Corner is not only a village but also a bend in the racecourse. I was particularly pleased when I found the website with old aerial photos (https://www.britainfromabove.org.uk/) showing sites previous use. I must remember it for my future UK location research. I found all the research useful, even the weather patterns got me thinking about my future pavilion design and comfort of the user. Right now I feel that the design should have some reference to the horses or racing while taking advantage of the elevation and view from the site.
