Where we are in Ramsey is right on the edge of a "Jurassic" Plain
Jurassic Period Age : 142 to 205 million years ago
The British Isles continued its northwards drift. As global sea-level began to rise in the Early Jurassic only southern and eastern England remained submerged throughout the Jurassic, with the south-west and northern England, Scotland, Wales emerging as land areas from the Lower Jurassic onwards. An isolated island, the Anglo-Brabant landmass, was the area around London! ..makes you think doesn't it!?
Key events The warm, tropical Jurassic sea teemed with life including marine reptiles such as plesiosaurs and relatives of squids known as ammonites and belemnites. Reptiles also flourished on land and evolved into many forms including the dinosaurs and birds.
