Torquay Fossil Collecting

Many people are familiar with the Jurassic Coast and head to Lyme Regis and surrounding area to collect fossils. However, for those staying at Rowell House, there are opportunities to find fossils closer to hand.

Torquay is rich in Devonian corals. If you are lucky, you can find superb corals that standout from the rocks. Fossils can be found both in the limestones and the calcareous mudstone within sandy deposits. During the Devonian, there were abundant colonies of corals, which is why fossils can often be found together in groups.
