Fossil collecting fieldtrip at Bracklesham, West Sussex – Saturday 22nd July, 2017

Another great fossil hunting fieldtrip along the shore in Bracklesham, West Sussex.  Bracklesham is a great place to hunt for fossil shells and sharks’ teeth which are 45 million years old.  Experts will be on hand to help you ‘get your eye in’.  You should be able to boost your collections with lots of  Eocene age fossils!

The picture is of our last fieldtrip to Bracklesham with a Rockwatcher holding  a perfect cemented collection of nummulites.

You must be a Rockwatch member to go and the booking fee for this fieldtrip is £2.50 per individual.  All children attending and their accompanying adults must book places.

There is a book about the fossils you may find and if you would like to buy one just go to the West Sussex Geology website  and contact David Bone, the author.

Rockwatch does it safely…
Due to safety requirements numbers are strictly limited for some of the events. It is essential in these cases that you reserve a place through the contact given. Leaders reserve the right not to accept members who have not booked, or who arrive inappropriately dressed. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
