Fossil hunting in the North West

A view of Morecambe Bay from the top of Jack Scout in Silverdale, Cumbria

The limestone features around Arnside and Silverdale, in Cumbria, all have great geology for fossils.

You can see brachiopods, which are the remains of marine animals, at Arnside Knott in particular.
There are fossilised footprints of ancient hunters, deer, wolves and extinct giant cows on the beach at Formby, Merseyside.
