Middle Jurassic (165 mya), Blisworth Limestone & Blisworth Clay.

Dylan’s two goals for 2015 are to achieve his Chief Scout Bronze Award and to find his own fossil. 👀
So, today we went out fossil hunting in two Northamptonshire locations – Weldon & Roade. The former is a working quarry and the latter a disused railway line.
We managed to bring back quite a good selection of specimens to investigate further…
If there are any fossil experts out there who can help us to identify them do shout!
