Best of luck! 

But the Isle of Sheppey is mainly London Clay which is Ypresian (Lower Eocene) in age, I think.

One of my favourite sites and probably the best site for fossil plant seeds in the world. Have fun :dinothumb:

It wasn’t the most productive of trips and I can’t feel my toes anymore:doh!: but I enjoyed it as I can’t hunt all that often as I can’t drive:ighappy::ighappy: when I get home in aroumd 2 and a half hours I will be able to show you what I found I had to leave a lot of potential nodules behind though, in the end the cold forced us to leave though and sadly I didn’t find my main target, a sharks tooth but I found lots of assorted pyritized things:),
