  • Read about the marine fossils around Huddersfield – including the Brockholes fish.
  • See pictures of the tree fossils found in local quarries.
This book contains a geological map of the Huddersfield district, cross sections and lots of sketches and photographs.  In 1998 the Huddersfield Geology Group received the Lasmo Geological Challenge Award for this book.
