Barton on Sea, England, GB

The Barton Clay at Barton on Sea is famous for its hundreds of different species of shells, in particular, its gastropods. The beds are also rich in sharks’ teeth, fish and mammal remains. Sharks’ teeth at Barton can be picked up from the foreshore making this location ideal for all the family. Sharks’ teeth are regularly found and are often easier to find in the shingle of the foreshore, particularly just beyond the sea defences. These come from beds that also contain many other fish remains, such as pieces of jaw, which can also be found scattered across the beach in the sand and single. This bed continues upwards at Highcliff to the middle of the cliff, although these are quite poorly slipped.

* Suitable for children 6+ (All children must be accompanied by an adult).
