FOSSIL HUNTING ALONG THE JURASSIC COAST
Want to find a piece of history? Along the Jurassic Coast you can… if you know where to look. Charmouth Beach is only a couple of miles from Warren House Bed & Breakfast!
FOSSIL HUNTING IS GREAT FUN! STAY SAFE
Fossils are eroded from the cliffs which are a World Heritage Site and scattered onto the beach. Where those of you hunters with a keen eye can find them. Don’t forget not to go to close to the cliff when fossil hunting as the cliffs are constantly eroding and could fall at any time. You don’t necessarily find the fossils in the cliffs, we have seen fossil hunters hammering away at the cliffs putting themselves in serious danger and the fossil hunters looking along the beach seem to find the treasure so, stay safe!!
It is worth booking yourself on a ‘Fossil Hunting Walk’ with the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre. With the experts not only will you learn how to find a fossil, you will find a fossil!!
Fossiling is great fun for all ages and once you start finding fossils, you’ll be hooked!!
