Caption: School trip. School children and teachers on a trip to Kimmeridge Bay, Dorset. This area is part of the Jurassic Coast Heritage Site. It is rich in oil and fossils. The Kimmeridge Clay Formation is composed of mudstones and shales. The fossils include shells of ammonites and bivalves, and the bones of marine reptiles, dinosaurs and pterosaurs. These primary school children, supervised by their teachers, are hunting in rock pools, looking for algae (seaweed), flowers and fossils, taking notes, making sketches, and taking photographs. The area near the cliff is avoided as it is hazardous due to loose shales and the risk of rockfalls. Photographed in July 2011.
