Searching for fossils

In recent weeks, I made a visit to Victoria Park to find the Fossil Grove there. It is possible to  travel to this park on the No. 44 bus which is a well known bus service serving the West End.

View over the flower beds.

There is a impressive range of activities available at the park including accessible toilets and picnic areas. I enjoyed seeing the birdlife which have adopted the ponds as their home, including swans, ducks and heron.

The Fossil Grove is a collection of ancient tree stumps and is described by the Council as " one of the most famous in-situ Carboniferous forest examples in the world."
