Cleveland, England

We visited this site on May 22, 2013. It is one of the many localities features on the The UK Fossils Network website.
The Redcar site is on the coast, north Marske on the Sea. Parking along the esplanade is free.

We came here looking for the small pyritized ammonites that are known to be found in the rubble on the Redcar end of the beach.

Example of the rubble piles at Redcar
Access to the beach is a short clamber down the dunes. No tools are required.

Fossils are found in the rubble piles all along the beach from Redcar to Marske on the Sea.
The fossils are washed in by the waves from the offshore beds.
As such, the types of fossils to be found can vary greatly along the stretch of beach.

Fossils found at Redcar
We did find a couple of the small pyritized ammonites.
We found no complete specimens but they are there.

Meeting Dac Dave
By pure accident, we met up with a fellow member of the UK Fossil Network at Redcar.

My thanks AGAIN to the The UK Fossils Network for their hot tips!
