I decided to have a steady walk to sandsend today. There is a large carpark and then we walked towards the left up some steps. If you want a sandy beach you can go to the right (no fossils here though)

After a 15 minute walk you come to an old  tunnel (bottom right)

You do not go through the tunnel and go down the steps on your right. (Top) near the bottom these steps are very steep espeically with a bag full of fossils. Once on the beach i spent a good few hours looking around. The only people i saw on the beach were fossil hunters, others just go to the easy access sandy beach i think

I found alot of bone or wood? Maybe you guys can tell me if any is bone.

I found lots of nodules, but they are very hard and I had no good breaks on the beach. But notice the nodule on the left, hopfully its a nice one. The little ammonite on the top right is on a nice nodule also.

 

Overall a great day out, and the rain stayed off until i left!

Nice pictures, a good guide for those who plan to visit. 

And good luck with those nodules!

I like how you gave us a tour of the site. Felt like I was there for a few seconds. :) 
I can't say whether they are bone or wood, let an expert tune in on that. (I only do ordovician critters)
I like your nodules! Good luck opening them.

I’ve got a feeling that out of all of them its the large block i left on the beach. No way was i carrying that back up!
