Join us for the next Rockwatch field trip on Saturday 2 July 2022 to Kings Dyke Nature Reserve near Peterborough.

The area is historically famous for brick making thanks to the abundant clay pits but it is also extremely rich in Jurassic-age fossils. Many of the original pits have been made into nature reserves and it’s one of these we’ll be visiting.

With the help of Rockwatch Guides, Rockwatchers are very likely to find partial or even complete fossil finds to take away on the day. Reptile remains are really common, including ichthyosaurs and pliosaurs. According to UK Fossils Network the most common fossil find at Kings Dyke is the bivalve Gryphea, though Belemites are also very often found. 

It costs just £2.50 per person to join us for an exciting day of fossil hunting and discovery so book now to join in the fun!
