*Field Trip to Hunstanton*

Sunday August 6th

After last year’s successful trip to Hunstanton we have arranged another field trip there for this year 2017.

The exact times for the trip are to follow… with additional details about meeting points etc.

Im sure many of you will have seen the spectacular white, red and brown cliffs that the coast at Hunstanton is famous for. This field trip will give you an opportunity to discover more about the Cretaceous age material and fossils making up the cliff at Hunstanton cliff which were laid down between 70 and 125 million years ago under a sea. You will also get the opportunity to collect fossils enclosed in the rock, most common of which are shells (bivalves and brachiopods), belemnites, sponges, crustacean burrows and maybe an ammonite or shark tooth.

Theres also lots more information at this link: Hunstanton Location Information if you should need it.
