Day 28; #30DaysWild - Fossil Hunting at Stokes Barn

Stokes Barn just outside Much Wenlock is made from local stone. In this case, it is Much Wenlock Limestone, ie the best rock ever if you’re me aka a geology geek. The walls of the barn are FULL of fossils from an ancient reef system, and I love looking at them and showing them to others.

Solitary coral.


Every June the Wildlife Trusts run a campaign called 30 Days Wild. This year I shall be taking part! It is my first time doing the challenge, and I’ve been planning lots of things to do over the month. The idea is to encourage wildness, exploration and an involvement with the natural world. The daily things can be anything, from walking barefoot, to doing outdoor yoga, or growing veg to hunting out woodlice under a stone. Little things that help you reconnect with nature!
