Thank you both! I’m looking forward to new opportunities myself. I’ll be posting closeups of some of the teeth as soon as I figure out where I stashed them in my luggage!

Nice finds. Like the geology/beach shots alot...By any chance do you happen to know what caused the alternating layers in the boulders? Were there very thin beds/layers in the beach faces somewhere...Fossiliferous?

Good luck in the new locale, sounds exciting! We've done several moves over the years and usually ended up on either US coast somewhere.. aside from the job changes saw it as an opportunity to see new things and people and get rid of some of the hoarding we do too much of down here...

Regards, Chris

Sorry, I don’t know. As far as I know there are the Red Crag cliffs that sit on top of the London Clay. Both are very fossiliferous but neither form boulders. I’m fairly certain that the boulders were brought in from somewhere else to stop with the coastal erosion that is happening rapidly along the Suffolk and Norfolk coasts.
