Hi all, we're going to Staithes again for a week.  We know Port Mulgrave, Staithes and Saltwick Bay really well.  Would you recommend anywhere else?  We can do the new steps at Port Mulgrave but thats our limit (hip arthritis plus lads 10-15 yr so for example couldn't walk from Staithes to Port Mulgrave and back on beach).
Would be nice to try a new location
Cheers

Rachael

Hello, from Runswick you can, on an outgoing tide, walk towards Kettleness; there`s the uppermost Pliensbachien: Cleveland Ironstone formation, and in the lower Toarcian: Grey shale, jetrock, bituminous and alum shale.
Do not expect large quantity but you`ll allways find something and this stretch gives a good surprise every now and again, mostly in the form of bone material or nice ammonites, but fish and nice belemnites are also a possability.
Happy hunting!

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

I'd love to get around that bit, might go for an explore, tides freak me out a bit. Met you briefly once at Port Mulgrave 2016 (May?) Trying to workout a way down, you managed it but we played it safe. Cheers

Hi Try Sandsend as you can park in the car park (pay and display) and access beach from the cliff path, though it's a walk of about 15 mins with steps mostly with hand rail to the beach. Safer than going along the beach and round the headland as you've only an hour either side of low tide.
Finds can be Icthy bone in blue/grey rock and lots of ammonites, plus pyritised bivalves and belemnites. Just beware the shale falling down.

Thanks, we went along that path a bit tonight, then lads got distracted with side path and geocache. Ended up walking along beach a bit at low tide, some worn ammonites. Might go back and explore cliff path again
