Fossil Hunting

Useful Information for Fossil Hunters
There is a fossil collecting code of conduct here in Lyme Regis and along the Heritage Coast.
As long as you don`t dig in the cliffs in situ you are allowed to take anything thats washed out of the mudslips by the sea and onto the beaches!
The good news
By being freely able to collect from the beach your saving fossils from the destruction of the sea and key scientifically important fossils (such as insects fossilized ) must be registered at Chramouth Heritage Centre for the Natural History Museum to review for a period of 6months!
Recently some children on a fossilwalk collected fossil dragonflys by breaking them from the nodules on the beach these have now been registered for scientific value!
If anyone is seen digging or breaking any of the ammonite pavements they can be in serious trouble so this is strictly forbiden.
Fallen blocks and material washed out by the sea is all fair game for amateurs collectors geologists and professinal fossil hunters!
There is a beach warden Stuart Godwin, he patrols the coast and makes sure that these guide lines are adhered to.
