Hi,
I am wondering about the possibility of taking a small group fossil hunting in Robin Hood's Bay, Yorkshire, in late Sept.  One problem is that the tide will be high when we want to visit.  Does anybody know if their are fossils in the cliffs of Robin Hood's Bay and if the cliffs can be accessed when the tide is in?  Also is there a local expert who might be asked to guide us (for a small fee)?  Thanks.

Hi Amanda

I know nothing about robin hoods bay but do know extracting fossils from any cliff is extremely dangerous because of potential rock falls and you will be responsible for any accidents

Hello Amanda, to avoid people getting killed or injured, you might consider getting there either a week earlier or later, when the tide is opposite the one you planned.
The tide in RB reaches the cliffs and getting cut of is easily done and as the former reaction clearly states; these cliffs are dangerous and one should not be close to them at any time.
Only last year a child was killed on this coast by falling rock.
So, plan your trip wisely and have a good hunt!

greets, Bert

As everyone says, take care. You don't want to get it wrong anywhere on this coastline when it comes to tides, and it can be trully astonishing where people choose to stand. I have seen a large family sat on rocks directly under the overhanging cliffs at mulgrave and they look at you stupid when you point out the potential danger.
