Location description

At the eastside of the Limfjord is the “Fredrik VII Canal”, built between 1855 and 1861 because the shipping was hindered by the “Løgstør Grunde” sandbank.

Large amount of bryozoan chalks from the lower Danian (zone Tylocidaris oedumi, part of the Paleogene period) was moved. The chalk was dumped at the westside of the canal on the shore. Because of the constant erosion you can find many fossils here. Alse keen an eye on possible building sites.
