Went looking for blackberries today but came back with this instead:

The chip will make a nice pendant.

A few hours with the grinder/sander and a nice shiny doorstop/conversation piece associated with the end Triassic extinction appears.

I really need to get myself down there and have a look around as it's only a 20 minute drive from me.

@Dirty Pete  You went blackberry hunting with a hammer?

Hi Pete,
Well worth a visit, just make sure you're wearing wellies. The river exposes Mercia mudstone through to Lower Lias. There's even a small exposure of Westbury formation if you know where to look......with bones...

not to mention the spectacular in situ bioherms....and the Triassic/Jurassic boundary.
