Fossil Hunting in England's Jurassic - Ammonite Graveyard at Monmouth Beach in Lyme Regis

April 24 - A 10 minute walk heading west from Lyme Regis along shore shingle is a ledge of limestone called the Ammonite Graveyard, packed with the internal molds of embedded Coroniceras in the Blue Lias layer

regarding the various ammonites

Wendy from Hampshire came up to us on the beach and offered us some
of her finds!  She was traveling by bus and couldn't manage the weight.
Back at Charmouth, we found the teeniest ammonites you ever saw!
