Thanks to our heritage as a former colliery, the Betteshanger site is perfect for fossil hunting. You’ll find plenty of fossils either lying on top of the spoil heap or by digging down into the spoil.

This Easter holiday we’re running a number of sessions run by local geologist Andy Temple, member of The Geologists Association, Kent Geologists Group and Geoconservation Kent.

£8 per person.
Sessions run at 10am, 11.15am, 12.30pm & 1.45pm.

Suitable for ages 6 and over. Children must be accompanied by an adult. All tools, safety equipment and instruction are provided. You will be digging in the coal spoil so please be prepared to get dirty.
