FOSSIL HUNTING

FOSSIL HUNTING IN YORKSHIRE

Whitby Jet was undoubtedly one of the earliest gemstones used to create artefacts and items of jewellery and has a cultural heritage that extends back to early tool making man. Whitby Jet is the fossilized remains of a tree from the Jurassic period and is only found along a seven and a half mile stretch of the North Yorkshire coastline which centres around Whitby and Raithwaite Estate.

Guided expeditions are available and take about three hours and having expert guidance greatly increases your chances of a good find.

For further information regarding the available fossil hunting trips, visit our local tourist information centre on Langbourne Road, Whitby alternatively details can also be found via www.discoveryorkshirecoast.com.
