In a now-disused quarry, the caves in coral limestones were formed more than 300 million years ago. Find out how the caves developed and visit one of them where you can see the fossilised bones of elephant, hippo, bison, lion, hyena and other animals that lived in the Dart Valley 100,000 years ago.
Visit the small museum where you can handle some of the bones. Find out about the bats that live in the caves and make a plaster cast fossil to take home.
Meet at Pengelly Centre, Russets Lane, Buckfastleigh, TQ11 0DY.
