Journeying back to Jurassic times and beyond. Delve into the mysteries of the Earth's history to find out about Rochdale's rocks, how and when they were formed and which plants and animals might have become trapped inside them.

This is hands-on fun with fossils, ferns and dinosaur footprints. A key message will be helping to explain the origins of the local landscape, how it's changed over time and what we can do for future generations.
