A really first class experience. Whitby Fossil Hunting Trips are led by Byron Blessed of Natural Wonders,a dedicated palaeontologist, in Grape Lane Whitby. To take part in these trips it is recommended that you book in advance. Byron guided us through Whitby Old Town to the 199 steps leading up to Whitby Abbey and to St Mary's Church. At the top we then took the Cleveland Way footpath along the coast to Saltwick Bay. Byron was very attentive at all times throughout the walk. It is recommended that Walking Boots with ankle support are worn especially when negotiating the path from the cliff top down to Saltwick Bay. On the day we took part conditions underfoot on this pathway were treacherous and care had to be taken going down to the beach. Two of us did slip and ended up on our backs! Once on the beach Byron provided us with a great deal of information about fossils and were to look for them Several of our party found fossilised Ammonites. This is an activity for all ages provided you are fit and active. It is fairly strenuous. We returned along the beach to Whitby where the tour ended. An excellent time for everyone. Byron is to be congratulated on the tour. The total time was just over three hours. Our grandson, aged 11, was very interested and has since said he had a fantastic day. Highly recommended. Thank you Byron.
