What you'll do

We'll meet at Charmouth sea front and spend the first part of your fossil walk covering safety on the beach. Then I'll teach you a great system for finding fossils. While showing you fossil examples I'll train your eyes to know what to look for. After this session we'll head straight down onto the beach to put your new skills into practice. The walk last for 3 hrs.

Martin

Hi, I'm Martin and I'm proud to have been born in Dorset. I'm passionate about the Jurassic Coast and this was instilled in me from childhood while spending my time exploring the area with my parents, something that my mum & dad had done with my grandparents before me. With my parents spending time on the coast as children it was inevitable that I would do the same… it is this rich pedigree that has made me who I am now; passionate about this amazing coastline. I'm now also a qualified Mountain Leader and enjoy leading walks and tours on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site as a professional guide. Long distance walking is my passion but I'm also a fossil enthusiast and love hunting for fossils. In 2018 I won 'Guided Tour Of The Year' at the Dorset tourism Awards. It was great to be recognised as Dorset's leading tour guide.

Where you'll be

We'll head out onto the beach to the best locations to find prehistoric treasures from the Jurassic Coast with your newly found skills!
