Join us on our upcoming field trip to Walton-on-the-Naze for an epic fossil hunting expedition!

Walton-on-the-Naze isn’t just any ordinary coastal town. It’s a treasure trove of ancient wonders! With its colourful cliffs that expose Pleistocene sands and red crag above the London Clay Formation from the Eocene Epoch, it’s the perfect spot to uncover fossils from millions of years ago!

Led by the amazing Ian and Ros Mercer, we’ll dive deep into the past and search for incredible fossils like shark’s teeth and pyritised twigs. These fossils hold secrets of creatures that roamed the Earth long before us, giving us a glimpse into their world!

The cliffs of The Naze are eroding fast, revealing new treasures with each passing tide. So, grab your Rockwatch field trip kit and get ready to explore!

Sign up now and join the Rockwatch team for a day filled with excitement, discovery, and loads of fossil fun!
