    Recent Folkestone Fossil Trip

    Hi All, Thanks for having me here. Me and my girlfriend have recently discovered an interest in looking for fossils. Luckily for us, we have spent some time in Folkestone, England which we have discovered is pretty full of fossils in the right place. The below are a couple of finds from one afternoon down at Copt point while we were walking the dog. Any extra information about what we found would be very much appreciated. My uneducated guess is that all are ammonites except for the two specimens at the bottom, which I am completely unsure of. They all came out of a gault clay

    Trip to Folkestone

    Went to Folkestone (Early Cretaceous, Albian) for the second time a couple of weeks ago. Last time I mostly climbed among the big rocks looking in the gaps for fossils but this time due to some poor navigating we accessed the beach from the opposite end this time around. This turned out well though as this stretch of beach has few of those big rocks but good access to the cliffs and slumps. We ended up spending most of the trip picking through the cliff base and fresh fall. This produced some nice ammonites, though it was still difficult to find whole ammonites as is the case with this locatio

  4. Hi there - I've been ploughing through the web trying to identify these recent finds on a fossiling trip to Folkestone, but sadly without success. If anyone could help me identify them that would be very much appreciated. Image 1 (specimen approx 2.5 cm long) Image 2 (specimen approx 2.5 cm across) Image 3: (largest specimen 6 cm long) Thank you!
  5. I found this fossil / mineral over at Folkestone, and would really appreciate any help in identifying it. It looks like it could be part of a larger organism, but also appears rather crystalline in shape. Does anyone have any ideas on this?
  6. I've just come back from a lovely fossil hunting trip in Folkestone! Here's what we found *unpreped* in 3 hours: Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area, i'll post more photos when they're clean!
  7. Found these 2 in the gault clay of Folkestone UK and after a while of looking online I'm stumped. they look like ammonite fragments but the preservation isn't great.

    Our fossil hunting holiday trip

    Natalie81 and I are back from our fossil hunting holiday. On the 20th of july we left for a long camping and fossil hunting week in the UK, we took the ferry in Calais to Dover, drove to Porthsmouth and the 2nd ferry to our 1st stop: 5 days on the Isle of wight. the 1st day on the Island, we prospected the beaches on the the south west of the isle where the Wealden cliffs could deliver some dinosaur remains.We had no luck this time. the 2nd day we went to the southern part of the Island where we could find some cenomanian ammonites in the chalk.

    Trip to Folkestone

    Hi all, went to Folkestone, Kent a few weeks ago for the first time and came back with a pretty decent haul of ammonites (a lot of fragments and a fair few completes) as well as bivalves and gastropods. I think some of my finds are pretty cool so thought I'd share them with you all. I'll include my IDs but please bear with me as I am quite new to this and have certainly got some (if not most) of them wrong - so please chime in with suggestions and answers! all are from the Gault Clay, early cretaceous (Albian).anahoplites sp.anahoplites sp.no idea what these two are, as you can see they
  10. Hi all, got some ammonites here that I desperately need help identifying! They are all from Folkestone, Kent from the Gault Clay of the lower cretaceous. There are also a few gastropods that I can't ID either. Thanks in advance for your help!
  11. Hi all, I found this scaly looking rock at Folkestone, UK. Looks to be from the greensand. Any guesses as to what it could be? Thanks. Jay

    Tooth? From Folkestone UK

    Hi guys, I found this along with a lot of belemnites at Folkestone Warren, UK. It looks like some sort of tooth but I'm not sure. It measures 1.2cm/0.5" long and has an almost rectangular cross section. Any ideas? Jay
  13. Hi all, I found these rocks around Copt Point at Folkestone, UK and was wondering what they could be. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance. Jay
  14. A while ago I bought this tiny gault clay ammonite preserved in pyrite and in a few months of storage next to dessicant mineral these strange white crystals have grown. -pyrite disease?

    Birostrina sulcata? Folkestone, UK find

    Hey everyone, I was hoping one of you fine peoples could help confirm or deny the ID of these specimens I brought home from Folkestone, UK. They are very water worn and mostly broken, but I’ve seen them in videos of Folkestone fossil hunting and they look a lot like Birostrina sulcata. Any help is greatly appreciated. First photo is mine, the other two are example photos I found.

    Folkestone, UK trip advice

    Hey everyone! My son and I are heading to Folkestone (and possibly Herne Bay if we have time) tomorrow to do some fossil hunting. I’ve heard that Copt Point is the place to go to look. Does anyone have any tips or advice before we go tomorrow? I’ve already checked tide times and have planned most of the trip around it. Thanks!
  17. Hello, I found this yesterday in Folkestone and was wondering if anyone can help identify whether or not it is a fossil. It is 11cm long, 4 cm wide. It seems to be fully mineralised, it pings like flint when knocked on something hard. Thanks
  18. 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!

    Ammonite And Other Id Please

    Hi Everyone, This is my first ever post, and I just wanted to let you all know that I am new to fossil hunting, but enjoy it very much. It is quite difficult for me to do on a regular basis as I live in an area of Australia that has very few interesting geological deposits, and is very low in available fossils. On a recent trip to the Uk I visited Folkestone, but as it was the middle of summer at the time, there was very little recent exposure at the base of the cliffs due to lack of rainfall. I know nothing I found here is particularly impressive, but I would love to know exactly what they
