We have over ten years’ experience taking private and small groups fossil hunting along the amazing West Dorset stretch of the infamous Jurassic coastline.
All age groups and levels of interest catered for.
The shoreline at Charmouth nestles between two cliffs. To the west are the vast mudslides of Black Ven and to the east the towering upright cliffs of Stonebarrow, with Golden Cap in the distance (the highest point on the south coast). There are three large car parks at Charmouth, a fossil shop, cafe, toilets and the world famous Charmouth Heritage Centre.
Lyme Regis is a bustling coastal town with an ancient harbour,
(The Cobb) dating back to medieval period. There are lots of cafes, pubs and five fossil shops. The Lyme Regis museum has an extensive section on the local fossils and a very impressive display about Mary Anning. The walks can either go to the east and explorer the cliffs and eastern part of Black Ven or to the west and a visit to the “Ammonite Grave Yard” and the ledges and rock pools of Monmouth Beach.
