Moon Plain

Used as a set in several movies, this vast, rocky expanse really does make you feel as if you are standing on the surface of the moon, but this area was actually a sea 120 million years ago. Part of the backbone of a 5-metre-long ichthyosaur (an ancient marine creature that looked a bit like a  dolphin) has been found here.
