Heights of Abraham

The Fossil Factory

The Fossil Factory brings to life fun and interesting facts about rocks and fossils and the formation of the Peak District. In addition there is a film presentation about how, over millions of years, the landscape of Derbyshire and the caverns at The Heights were formed.

It is also home to the fossilized remains of a giant Ichthyosaur, alive at the same time as the dinosaurs. You can get up close and at around 3 metres long it is one fossil you won't want to miss!
