Fossil Hunting at Portishead Beach

Places to Visit

A varied spot for fossiling awaits at Portishead Beach.

UK Fossils explain that Battery Point is suitable for children (but keep away from the salt marsh and boggy areas).

Children and families can find fossils easily by scouring small rocks along the shore.

Expect to find corals and crinoids and maybe more... - good luck!

DIRECTIONS

  • Take the A369 from the motorway and follow it into Portishead. Then follow the signposts to Woodhill or Battery Point. At Battery Point, there is a public swimming pool, where you can park.
  • You can find fossils at Battery Point immediately on the foreshore, which is the first part of this location. From here, the fish beds can be reached by walking southwest, passing a second smaller cliff and reaching a third much higher one.
