Jurassic Coast branded signs can now be seen at railway stations in
East Devon as well as Dorset, promoting the station's close proximity to and affiliation
with the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Signs direct visitors from the trains to adjacent bus services, which allow them to continue to travel to and around the Jurassic Coast using a sustainable means of transport. The bus routes link the ‘Gateway' towns along the coast, which in turn offer great access points to the South West Coast Path National Trail for further exploration on foot.
Gateway town signs can also now be seen throughout East Devon, linking the coastal towns to the Jurassic Coast and highlighting the important role the towns play in providing a good base from which to explore and learn about the World Heritage Site further.
A new book that takes a quirky look at the Jurassic Coast has been published in time for Christmas – and it’s already proving to be a big hit. The Jurassic Coast – A Mighty Tale is published by The Jurassic Coast Trust and is written and illustrated by local artist Tim Britton.
Are you a Primary Teacher and need more help to effectively teach Rocks, Fossils and Evolution in your science curriculum? Then come and join us for a FREE training day led by Primary education consultant David Weatherly. Our special Big Jurassic Classroom Superteachers will also be on hand to take you through their own resources they have developed for the new Primary Science curriculum.
This two hour session starts up at the Centre with a 20 minute talk from the Centre Warden about the fossils of Charmouth and how to find fossils on the beach. The group then heads out onto the beach with the wardens and spend the rest of the session looking for fossils.
