The Natural History Room


The Natural History Room is housed in the old School Room attached to the side of the Church building. It consists of a collection of present day shells, skeletons and taxidermy to try and show you how present day life is related to what we see in the fossil collection.

You might enjoy the Indian python skeleton that drove me to distraction when I was trying to fit together the 321 backbone segments. Or you might prefer the Blue Shark taxidermy, or the butterfly collection or the peacock in full display.

The unusual taxidermy of a pack of fish fingers is unique.
