Have you ever tried to catch extinct tropical lobsters on ice? No? Well on our Hidden Geology walk along Filey Brigg you'll get a chance to!
We'll meet on the beach by the Filey Boat Club at 12 noon and walk towards the Brigg, stopping to search for evidence of the last Ice Age on the beach and in the cliffs. Once we're cool with this, we'll start working our way along the Brigg, looking for Jurassic lobster burrows and glacial limestone pavements, to tell an extraordinary story of climate change in deep time. We will complete our walk by walking out along the Brigg, discussing its origins, and nosing around among the rock pools and storm-tossed boulders for fabulous fossils. Aiming to finish on the Brigg at 4pm
