The Jurassic Coast covers 95 miles of stunning coastline of Dorset and East Devon, with the rocks recording 185 million years of the Earth's history, dating from the early Jurassic period making it easy to find a wide range of spectacular fossils.
Due to cliff erosion, fossil deposits can still be found in large numbers on the beaches of the Charmouth, Lyme Regis, Portland and the world heritage site, including: ichthyosaurs, giant marine reptiles, bones from dinosaurs intricate crinoids and ammonites.
