Biddulph Grange

Whilst we had a spell of bright weather, we decided to go on a mystery tour.  We ended up at Biddulph Grange and walked in the gardens.
Whilst there, I ventured into the Fossil Gallery to see how the restoration work is progressing.  All of the fossil replicas are now in place and the rock types in the stratification band are slowly being added, using new material.
It seems that the mammoth tusk was a problem.  All of these tusks have different dimensions and curves, so the original tusk would be needed to replicate into the recess in the wall.  The current tusk looks like a modelled object and stands out against the rest of the collection which has been replicated very effectively.  The results so far are of the highest standards.
