Fossil Hunting Trip, Shows me CraigClarke

Fossil Hunting Trip, Shows me CraigClarke

The Jurassic Coast consists of cliffs, spanning the Mesozoic Era, documenting 180 million years of geological evolution.

The 195 million year old Green Ammonite beds and 197 million year old Belamnite Marls,
are some of the richest fossil bearing deposits to be found anywhere along the Jurassic Coast.

Charmouth Beach

Charmouth Beach

One of the best places to find Fossils in the UK is around Charmouth and Lyme Regis.
The Jurassic clays here formed in a tropical sea, the soft muddy bottom gave good conditions for preserving the shells,
bones and even soft tissue of dead prehistoric creatures.

You can expect to find some fossils loose in the shingle at any time along certain parts of the coast, for example small ammonites.
You need to get your eye-in.
I recommend going on a organised fossil hunting walk, which are available all along the Jurassic Coast through the year.
They will teach you what your looking for and the tools you will need.

It’s important to know about the fossil collecting code.
You can keep fossils found on the beach or in material that has already broken away from the cliff.
But you must not dig from or chip away at the cliff itself, for safety and other reasons.

WARNING gloves, goggles and walking shoes recommended.


We are from the heart of the High Peak

We are from the heart of the High Peak

Based here in Chapel-En-Le-Frith surrounded by the stunning Peak District National Park.
Only 6 miles from Castleton, World famous for the rich veins of Blue John.

Most of the rocks that now form the surface of the Peak District National Park were laid down in the Carboniferous period

The Limestone was formed around 350 million years ago.
At this time, Derbyshire was covered by a shallow tropical sea.
What is now Britain was then quite close to the equator.
The bodies of dead shellfish and other sea plants gradually built up on the sea floor and fossilised becoming limestone.

Around 325 to 300 million years ago, Derbyshire formed part of the huge river delta wich came from what is now the highlands of Scotland.
Sediments of mud, sand and pebbles were deposited in the delta. Forming a rock called shale and grit stone.
