checking our fossil finds from halldale quarry, Debyshire, we find we have a trilobite. It appears aliitle different from our other carbonifereous trilobites.
we would like to return, but cannot find the quarry mentioned now?

Unfortunately Hall Dale Quarry has been given over to developers. We were last there six months ago and the site had been gated off pending the arrival of the diggers [frown] I’m not local, so I’m not sure of the latest status, but I would guess that an entire city is underway! Such a shame!

It was on the cards ...was going to happen 2 years ago last time I visited. Housing estate was planned.

Hi Jill
Derbyshire trilobites is my speciality, so if you want to post a picture I will try to ID for you. Someone else recently posted a picture of a Griffithides whitewatsoni pyg from here so it could be that, or it could be one of several other upper brigantian species.
