Hi. I'm visiting the North Yorkshire coast in a few weeks. I'm aware the footprints on the large boulders must be left where they are but can the ones on rocks smaller than around 50cm be collected?



Thanks,



Daniel

Provided they're on the beach if you don't the sea will.

Good luck with your search. Here's a couple I found earlier.  The Saurapod was from Robin Hood's Bay and the Therapod from Burniston. foot2.jpg  Foot1.jpg

The print from Robin Hood's Bay - is that embedded in the bedrock underfoot?

Yes, it looked really solid, I didn't even attempt to get it out in case of damaging it.

Hello, yes, at all those locations you can find traces; just north of Port, in the remnants of the 1995 fall, you can find prints and swimming traces in the sandstone blocks, presumably Saltwick formation.
At Holmsgrove sands I found a nice print in a slab of just under a square foot in 2016.

greetings, Bert

I've seen footprints at Scarborough and Saltwick, but, like Bert says, they can be anywhere where you can see fallen blocks from the correct formation. There's a trail in Jackson Bay north of Scalby Bay, Scarborough - it's been a few years since I walked that so I don't know how it looks today or what erosion has done to it. Right now, I can't remember where I've filed my pics of dino prints, but when I find them, I will post pics.
The ones pictured from Robin Hood's Bay - with them being in the bedrock underfoot, that means they're embedded in marine sediments so I'm not sure they were dino prints.
