The 110-million-year-old fossil was first discovered by Philip Hotland, overseer of the collection at the nearby Hastings Museum and Art Gallery. They are believed to come from at least six different species and have been verified by independent experts.
Mr Hotland said: “In 2011, I saw unusual rock formations in Faxton.
“They seem to be coming back again and again and I thought they might be footprints.
“This is contrary to what most geologists say about the rocks here, but I searched for more footprints and found more and more when the erosion subsided.
“Additional work was needed to make the scientific community realize its validity, so I teamed up with experts from the University of Portsmouth to verify what I found.”
The Foxstone Museum now shows some footprints.
David Martell, a professor of polyandhology at the University of Portsmouth, explained the importance of the invention.
He said: “This is the first time that dinosaur footprints have been found in layers known as ‘foxstone formation’, which is a very unusual discovery because these dinosaurs roamed the country before becoming extinct.”
“They were now walking near the white sand dunes of Dover – the next time you go on a boat you are painting those amazing rocks.

Different types of dinosaur footprints were found in the group.
This treatment involves eating meat that has three claws on each foot to send prey.
There were enclosures protected by a hard shell and ornithos called birds.
Iguanotone is one of the largest species of birds.
Hotland said the findings will change our understanding of the geography of the region.
He explained: “We have found dinosaurs migrating to the coast like their modern cousins, and we have also found new evidence of changing the geography of the layers of the Pouxton formation.
“Previously published information about the geography of an area is not always accurate, which shows that new insights can be developed.
“Almost anyone can make a discovery that combines scientific knowledge from generally accessible geographical locations.”
The dinosaurs became extinct 66 million years ago during the Cretaceous and Paleogene extinctions.
However, birds that are close relatives of dinosaurs continue to thrive to this day.
