Fossil bed

Archaeology, geology and pre-history

The fossil bed found at Lesnes Abbey Wood contains many types of fossils from the Eocene epoch of about 54.5 million years ago. The main fossils found today are sharks' teeth and seashells.

This scheme will bring an improved footpath to the fossil bed along with signage to the feature and interpretive information.

Keep an eye out for the Coryphodon!
