This event has now passed, find out what else is going on at Maldon Museum in the Park

Creeksea Cliff is a fossiliferous stretch of the riverbed of the River Crouch which is exposed at low tides.

The finds date back to the Eocene epoch (or period) with the site yielding numerous shark, ray and fish teeth, coprolites and several types of pyrite fossils. Due to the frequency of the finds it is a popular location with beginners and children.

The site is notable due its particularly small shark teeth suggesting it to be a 'nursery', making it popular with seasoned fossil hunters.
