Trassic sand ripples descovered River Leven
I decided to go back to the river Leven on the boarder of Cleveland and North Yorkshire today to try and discover where the sand ripple fossil my daughters had found earlier had come from.
6 The sand ripple fossils seem to run in a west to east direction although I can not be totally sure, as I had no compass.
7 - The river has cut through the sand ripple layer many years ago but slabs can still be found in the river.
8 - The black outline shows the sand ripples exposed from the upper Triassic deposits, at least 5 metres in depth.
