Lavernock Point looking for ammonites
Lavernock Point - which is the most southerly location in Wales. Here the Triassic and Jurassic boundary can be seen as well as ammonites in the wave-cut platform. It is also the discovery site of the Welsh dinosaur found in 2015.
Dinosaur footprints - then we visit a location near to Sully where the best preserved Triassic dinosaur track-way in Europe can be seen.
Barry Island - we then head to Barry island and observe fossil corals in Carboniferous limestone and a site where Triassic rock over lie the Carboniferous rocks. The order of locations visited on this tour will depend on tide times.
Nash Point -This dramatic cliff top is home to a lighthouse, and the cliffs below have yielded plesiosaur and ichthyosaur fossil remains. We spend 45 mins here looking for fossils on the beach under the cliffs. The rocks here are also Jurassic.
