Nice finds efossil , It’s been a long time since I’ve been to a coal pit. One famous opencast I use to go to was Crockhey opencast pit. Here are some pics of the siderite nodules containing plants.

I found them amongst the spoil being used as hard-core for a new housing development.

It’s a shame that these sites are becoming rare . I heard about one site near Doncaster where some animals have turned up . I think Dean Lomax as something to do with it. There’s also a few sites in Scotland are producing. But they are slowly fading away

I went there with Dean. It's at Edlington. Shark egg cases and plant remains. He's a really good lad and knows his stuff.

There is an excellent spoil tip near Radstock, Somerset.  We were there last week and found an intact branch of calamites

"spoil tip near Radstock, Somerset."

If this is the one I am thinking of, it was a great site. But the owner of the land told us to remove it from UK Fossils. He has claimed anyone on his land will be prosecuted. Just a warning.

Radstock Spoil Tip

Our one (also called Writhlington Spoil Tip) is definitely open to the public.  Radstock Museum ran a Family Fossil Hunt there last October and told us we could take our grandson  anytime.  It is a popular spot with locals and is turned over fairly regularly.

Yes Writhlington is open and great.

There is a better site in Radstock itself which is one I was thinking about.
