Dorset's Important Geological Sites

Quarr Lane, Sherborne

The DIGS group carried out one of its monthly conservation sessions on Sunday 10 November. The morning was spent at Quarr Lane, Sherborne. Apart from clearing encroching nettles, brambles and ivy, time was spent photographing fossils, mainly ammonites, which is hoped will help ongoing research on the Inferior Oolite.
