Look in the shale ledges as the tide goes out and in the boulders exposed at low tide,any fallen rocks at the penarth side but not in the red or green mudstone parts of the cliff.

Hi all,

Just want some info, the shale beds at lavernock, is it the same sort of thing as at lyme that when the tide goes out its time to start looking at the exposed ledges for ichthyosaurs. Ive been down a few times now and Ive found bits and bobs in the bone bed but im looking for that all elusive articulaited or semi fossil.

Any help would be very much appreciated

You can find bone dropped out of the cliff,in the shales or in the boulders or even washed up from the channel but articulated is rare from there.see the field reports for penarth and lavernock.

Are you based in the cardiff area? Is it the same as going to aust or garden cliff then, just look for falls and sift the fore-shore
