Jurassic News

Cliff falls over the last Winter mean that there are lots of fossils to be found on the beaches.

At every high tide more fossils are exposed from the cliffs, or washed onto the beaches where they can be found easily. This process will continue for months to come as sands and stones shift on the beach.

However, the cliffs remain very dangerous, and there have been several rescues by the emergency services recently where visitors have ignored warning signs. Please do not climb on the cliffs or mud flows, and do not hammer on the cliffs. Also, before you go fossil hunting on the beaches be sure to check the weather and tide times. We don't want you getting cut off by an incoming tide!

REMEMBER Fossils are creatures that get stuck in the mud. #DontBeAFossil
