The effects of the landslide a few years back can still be seen in Lyme. It's a strange thing to go there hunting for fossils and be greeted by glass bottles,car batteries,old tools and radiators. They look out of place on the beach but I am always drawn towards the objects when I should be there to hunt for vertebrae! I took more images this year...each year it's different...it's an interesting mix, the natural fossil forms from million of years ago next to the man made objects thrown down the cliffs.
