Burniston Rocks - Out & About
Since the days of William Smith, ‘The Father of English
Geology’, geologists have taken part in organised fossil hunts all
along this coast, recognised as one of the best geology sites in
the world. 180 million years of Earth History are laid out in the
rocks along the Yorkshire Coast.
Jurassic rocks bear evidence of a time when
dinosaurs roamed the area and footprints are clearly visible along
the shore at Burniston.
Why not spend some time searching for dinosaurs
along this coastline? Visit the dinosaur coast web site for a list
of exciting events throughout the summer season.
