The Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways
If you’re willing to travel a little further, you will find the best example of dinosaur tracks in the world.

The Trackways depict the world’s only recorded evidence of a Dinosaur Stampede. It features some 3,300 footprints, made by nearly 200 individual dinosaurs, telling a story of a few fateful moments, 95 million years ago. These Trackways inspired the stampede scene in the Steven Spielberg movie Jurassic Park.

During the Cretaceous Period, 95 million years ago, this area was a temperate rainforest surrounding a lake used as a waterhole for many wildlife species. It is believed that the Coelurosaurs and Ornithopods were at the lake until disturbed by a large Carnosaur when possibly it was coming for a drink but discovered a meal instead. The fossilised footprints then show how the Carnosaur stalked for its meal and then grabbed one whilst the other dinosaurs began to flee in panic. It can be seen how they fled because some footprints are embedded on previous footprints of the Carnosaur.
