Hello all! Not posted in a while. We are off to Lyme this week for some collecting. Does anybody know if there are any fresh slips worth looking at or any of the old slips turning up much?
Luckily our council have their Easter school hols at a different time to most councils so we benefit from normal priced breaks and not those over-inflated kids holiday breaks! So at least we can afford a holiday the kids can benefit from with a nice dose of collecting.
Can't wait!!!!!

Thanks in advance and if anyone else is down that way please let me know if you would like to meet up to search!

It's pretty slim pickings at the moment due to the calm weather and sheer amount of people about. But things can always be found all year round.

Hi Koss1959. Missed your reply as left for Lyme on the 11th. You were right, there wasn't much to find. Bashed a few nodules on Monmouth beach and found quite a few tiny calcified ammos. Didn't get too many pyritised ammos from the slips either thanks to easter hols maybe. Even pinhay bay gave up very little.
We tried watchet and kilvey on the way home with little to show, though I would advise people the scenery there is incredible!
My new philosophy now is to wear gloves when hitting rocks as I've a nasty laceration on my finger from a nodule!

Yes Lyme is a stunning place. I have a stunning view from my window over looking the bay. If I don't find anything, I just enjoy the walk and environment.

Gloves are a must! I always wear mine. No exceptions. It still hurts like hell when you get your thumb between the hammer and rock, but at least it doesn't cut, usually.

Try and get to Lyme in the winter. It can be pretty amazing then.
