Walton on the Naze


Fossil hunting for all!  The geology of the Naze cliffs is one of the most important geological sites in Eastern England with exposures of Red Crag and London Clay.  Walton-on-the-Naze is also a great area for fossil hunting on the beach where you can find sharks’ teeth amongst other things.  There’s also a visit to Essex Wildlife Trust’s new visitor centre on the cliff top which should have some geological displays.

Equipment:  Suitable clothing and footwear.  Bring a packed lunch.

This fieldtrip is being organized jointly by the Geologists’ Association and the Essex Rock and Mineral Society and is particularly suitable for families and children.

The cost of the trip is £5 per adult with children going free and to reserve a place contact Sarah Stafford on
