Geology section

Rocks, fossils and dinosaur footprints…
Housed here is one of the largest fully catalogued palaeontological collections in the South of England. It is composed of fossils collected over many decades, not only from various local Mesozoic and Tertiary exposures, but from other more distant older horizons further afield, including many overseas. More importantly many specimens have come from sites no longer accessible. The collections also include several type and figured specimens.
A separate Mineral Room houses an extensive collection of rocks and minerals from all over the world, amplified, again, by interesting and colourful displays. An outstanding set of highly varied marbles is one of its more striking elements.
