GEOLOGY fans walked back 160 million years in time as they took part in the Rotunda Museum’s Christmas Walks.

The annual event this year saw more than 75 people enjoy the dinosaur footprint walk along the South Bay yesterday.

Will Watts, of the Scarborough Museums Trust lead the walk, which gave people the chance to see the fossilised evidence of the prehistoric giants which roamed Scarborough 160 million years ago.

After the guided tour walkers then enjoyed a complimentary hot drink at the Gala Cafe, next door to the Rotunda Museum.

Phil Smith, of the Scarborough Museums Trust, said: “We were really pleased with the turn out for the Geology Walks.

“It was great to see so many people turning up to take advantage of this event, and walking off that Christmas excess with the Rotunda Museum experts.

“Both the Rotunda and Scarborough Art Gallery have remained busy throughout the Christmas period, and are open in the run up to the New Year.”
