Roade
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!

Some customers have gone in the engine bit because they’re a bit cold outside.
