  1. Today i visited runswick bay. I’ve been to this beach before and it’s lovely. There is a nice big car park, toilets and a cafe for a cuppa. These photos show the view from near the car park. When we arrived there wasnt many people on the beach but it soon got busier and the car park was near full when we left. Sadly i didnt find very many fossils but i did find two dacs. We met a photographer down on the beach who didnt have much luck finding anything so we gave the bottom ammonite to give to his young son. A

    Possible coral fossil?

    I’m on a fossil hunting trip and have arrived at my wondeful cottage in the north yorkshire country side. Today has been my travel day to the location so no fossil hunting sites have been visited. But my cottage has lots of different stones outside similar to this, probably brought from elsewhere. is it a coral?
  3. I'm heading to Whitby tomorrow for a week of relaxation and fossil hunting around the multiple beaches. Is it recommended to arrive an hour after low tide? I'll be spending 3-4 hours each day there max. I don't want to waste time waiting for the tide to go back out before i start collecting if possible.

    Are these IDs correct?

    I just got all these fossils in bulk and was wondering if these IDs are correct. Sorry for the long post. The IDs came mixed up so please correct me if you see any that are wrong. All collected in Yorkshire. Hildoceras Bifrons with shell structure showing? Hildoceras Bifrons on a small nodule Hildoceras Bifrons with some pyrite. Arnioceras Block Catacoeloceras Grammoceras Large Repaired Pseudoloceras Pos and Neg X2 Eleganticeras
  5. Hi all, Can anyone help me identify these belemnites from Speeton? They were found in the rare Kimmeridge Clay beach exposures, all in situ. The first is a stunner at 19cm long and has no distinguishing features. The second is about 12.5cm long and has a deep groove running from the tip to about halfway - is this cylindroteuthis? The third is smaller, at 8cm long, and you can just make out a similar groove (but shallower) down half of its length from the tip. Many thanks! Gillian
  6. Hi all, Is this a shark tooth? I found it in the red chalk at Speeton, Yorkshire. It’s about 1cm in length. Thanks! Gillian
  7. Hi all, Was wondering if anyone could help identify this from Speeton. I’m pretty sure it’s a chunk of partially pyratised bone. It was found lying on top of the Kimmeridge Clay beach exposures (but not directly in the clay, so i guess it could have washed up from anywhere). Could it be from an ichthyosaur or plesiosaur? Would love to know roughly what sort of bone it is. It’s longest side is about 5.5cm in length. Would very much appreciate any help with identifying this. Many thanks! Gillian

    belemnite battlefield?

    Funny story with this one, these are from a hunt from about a year ago. I put my bag in the washer and when taking it out this fell out. Lucky it survived after a wash. These are very small ones if they are belemnites.
  11. An unusually complete specimen although crowns are well known from this location. It is an early comatulid (feather star) and has a very short stem consisting of only six or seven columnals, all of which bear cirri. Reference: Simms, M.J. 1989. British Lower Jurassic Crinoids. Monograph of the Palaeontographical Society, London:1-103, pls.1-15 (No. 581) This was Invertebrate/Plant Fossil of the Month March 2015

    Can anyone identify this

    Found this on the foreshore at Kettleness yesterday (where incidentally there were far less fossils than I have ever seen there a dozen times or more) As anyone any idea what species it is? Apart from this only a couple of the usual Dactilyoceras Peter Ryder

    Ichthyosaur Boneblock

    We found this boneblock on Yorkshire coast, we spent 12 hours walking over rocks, mud etc as well as climbing ropes in the rain up cliffs, we visited port, runswick and Kettleness, followed cleveland way back as high tide but ended up taking a wrong turn and a huge detour round the old railway line before heading back to the beach through 8" mud down a thin track, tide was too high to pass so after a short while we found a little opening in the undergrowth that led to a path that took us to freedom, good job we took our head torches as was pitch black, oh the joys, backpack was getting heavier

  15. Hello all! I'm wondering, if there are any fossil sites in the UK with fossil shark teeth. I know in UK there are tons of places with ammonites, but what about shark teeth? As long as it's shark teeth, I want to find it. But if there's megalodon teeth in UK, I'd spend days looking for one. Any ideas where to find shark teeth in UK? Thanks for all replies!

    Jurassic Bone Block ID? (Yorkshire, UK)

    Hi all, I recently found this massive bowling ball sized rock at Saltwick Bay near Whitby on the Yorkshire coast (Northern England). It is lower to middle Jurassic, i think about 180-170 million years old (possibly the Whitby Mudstone Formation). As you can see it it's full of various bones, which occur on almost all sides of the rock so they are probably running right through it. Prep for this one is going to be a nightmare i can tell and i don't have the right tools, but for now i really just want to try and figure out what i've got. I think it's fair to assume the bones are associated. The

    Yorkshire Fossils

    Hello all! I'm planning to go to UK next year someday and find some fossils at the yorkshire coast areas. Any suggestions on what time to go next year for the best 'loot'? And, what tools should I prepare and bring there? Besides, what can I find besides ammonites?

    Unusual Rock find

    Firstly, i never have any finds where i live so i doubt this is even a fossil. I have to travel to the coast for finds. Anyway, i was walking my dog in Wakefield in west yorkshire and found this rather unusual stone. Does anybody know what it is and why it has so many holes?
  19. LiamL


    I found this ammonite when i split some shale at runswick bay. It looks different from the others maybe because it has been crushed? Can anybody ID? I wet it to try to make it easier to see.
  20. Saurorhynchus acutus (Agassiz, 1844) rostropremaxilla. Lower Jurassic, Mulgrave Shale Member (bed 42), Falciferum Subzone. Near Whitby, Yorkshire. I spotted this little fish rostrum when I was looking for belemnites a couple of weeks ago. It was about to flake off the outcrop and I hadn't found anything else interesting so I brought it home as a consolation prize. After some research, it seems it's very rare here. The only recorded specimens I can find are a few (5?) 19th century ones, including the holotype which is also just a jaw. Other workers at the time (Tate

    Mappleton Fossils

    I am heading to Mappleton near hornsea for a day of collecting for my birthday. Does anyone have any tips to make the most of the day. I'm thinking about placing some nodule like rocks in my bag to split at home to save some time. It's an exciting location to me because the finds are from glaciers so who knows what I could find.
  22. I was wondering if anyone could help me ID what my father found on Tuesday in the Speeton clay (Reighton Gap), Yorkshire. It seems to be a jumbled mess of all sorts... scales, teeth, jaw/pincers, and at least one small vertebra. Ive only just started cleaning it up so theres probably lots more to uncover yet. Not sure which bed it came from but my guess is it was from the upper half of the cliffs; the recent wet weather has caused much of the upper cliffs to sludge down to the bottom which is where it was found, lying on top. The block itself is around 12-13cm in length and is mostly b

    Need help please!

    Oh my I don't know where to start really! My 10 year old daughter is interested in collecting fossils. Today we have been to Filey beach on the East Coast, UK. She found numerous fossils. I think I have managed to help her identify them as ammonite, brachiopod and gryphaea. One however has me stumped and google isn't helping, maybe bone or wood? (to be honest I'm not sure it even is a fossil!) she is proud of her finds and is desperate to know what it is, hence me being here asking for help! Many thanks in advance

    Ichthyosaur Vertebrae

    I bought this cut and highly polished 4.3cm Ichthyosaur Vertebrae. Can anyone confirm that this is really an Ichthy, i'd like to be sure. It was found at kettleness north yorkshire as an erratic nodule.
