Folkestone and Samphire Hoe fossil sites: guidance needed

Recommended Posts

Ammonight

Hello all! Does anyone have detailed tips that they can share with me? I plan to go Folkestone and Samphire Hoe to find fossils.

I googled, and there's plenty of ammonites in those places. So, if anyone has good tips to share with me, please do, as I hope that I do not waste any time and effort looking for fossils when I am there.

 

Replies are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I think my old post could help you for Folkestone(very easy to find) but beware of the tide! :)

Don't waste energy trying to get fossils out of the cliff at Folkestone. You don't need equipment you just pick them up from between the rocks. Watch out for the tide, it is easy to forget and get cut off, and don't wear good clothes, the mud gets everywhere. You should be able to get a couple of kilos of small fossils very easily in a couple of hours and if you  are lucky some of them will be complete ammonites.
