Location description

In this quarry near Ellidshøj, not far from Aalborg, you can find nice fossils. The limestone dates from the Cretaceous period.

October 2006 by a visitor: In the old quarry no works are carried out anymore and the quarry is grown over. In the new quarry I did not find any fossils.

Ellidshøj is located about 15 kilometres south of Aalborg. The quarry is located southeast of Ellidshøj. From Ellidshøj in direction of Mjels. After about 1.5 kilometres go right. At the quarry there is an information panel. At the other side of Mjels there are several more limestone quarries but I do not know if you can find something there.
