Hello, nice one! Where found and how big is it?

greets, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

Not certain, the left two 'toes' are convincing but the right one isn't  often burrows look like this.  As Elbert asks where is it from are the beds known to have dinosaur footprints in?

I agree that it might not be a print

I have no idea if they are real, but Is that an overlapping 'footprint' to the right of the obvious one or am I seeing things?

Hello, I am quite certain it is one; I have an almost identical one from the Saltwick formation found at Kettleness. The one I have also shows the rightside toe bending out; I presume the foot would flex to better the grip of the animal...
I have seen lots more prints with the toe flexing; the neat prints of the animal resting/ standing still are scarse.

Folkestone lower Greensands Ornithopod footprint and we have agreed that there is another print beside the main one.

Hello, I agree; perhaps front leg and hindleg?

Hello all. I have just spotted this post. I visit the Isle of Wight regularly to see family. The SW coast from Compton Bay towards Atherfield show a good number of dinosaur footprint casts every year as they erode out. Some are in better condition than others - I have posted a few examples in the past. However, in 2016, I took this photo at Hanover point where the rock platform was being eroded fairly rapidly. Your post reminded me of this example of an Iguanodon(??) footprint. For scale the camera lens cover is 5.5cms in diameter
best wishes Alex

Thanks, I am wondering if it might be an Iguanodon.

Now that is a fine footprint from a site where footprints are known to occur. 
The so called Folkestone footprints are no where near as certain.

Hello, it took two hours to make it carryable and took the four of us 4 hours to carry it up cliff. It will be on display in Lythe before long.

Dear Denis
 
You have some amazing finds!
 
Paul Barrett and Susie Maidment have looked at the photos. And they, unsurprisingly, agree that they are footprints. Paul finds it interesting that they are from "a new locality and a slightly younger horizon" but not unexpected. Similar footprints are very common in the Early Cretaceous of the Purbeck and Wealden groups.
 
But still a great find!
 
I hope this helpful.
 
Regards,
Ben"
