A great shop to look around they have so much to chose from, Fossils, jewellery and more. I bought a sweet little Ammonite necklace and the service given to me was excellent. Go and have a look

there's a lot of local fossils on display, and the staff are very helpful. I found a better than average ammonite embedded in some rock, and they suggested some ways of enhancing it. There's some pocket money fossils, and also some VERY expensive collectors items...More
