And no, we don't mean chasing granny over the hill tops!Halkyn fossils and fossil collecting We've just discovered a fantastic new site for fossil hunting here on Halkyn Mountain, point your browsers to the UK Fossils Network site here!

Halkyn Mountain is a little over 300m years-old and was formed by being squashed between two ice sheets gathering shellfish/crustaceans as they developed. It has been occupied since Neolithic times and supports a variety Exploring Halkyn Mountainof wildlife habitats

We can start you off with your first fossil hunt - just look at the rocks in the car park and you'll find some (ask if you're not sure what you are looking for).  We can point you to many good brachiopods, corals and pieces of crinoidal Halkyn Mountain Leaflet (click to download) limestone (more information on the UK Fossils Network).

Park in the car park to start your expeditions and don't forget to come back to share your discoveries.   Pop in to collect a Story  of Halkyn Mountain Leaflet for more information or download it here.

We've also some more information about Halkyn Mountain here (also on the notice board outside the Blue Bell Inn) and of course you can download our award winning walk leaflets here.
