The area around Coesfeld, Legden and Holtwick is known by fossil collectors because of the upper Cretaceous Campanian limestone an marls ("Quadratenkreide") under the surface. The name Quadratenkreide comes from the common belemnite Gonioteuthis quadrata.
There are no active quarries in the area anymore, but you can still collect at temporary exposures like building sites.
