We are lucky to have, on temporary loan, a selection of fossils from the collection of local geologist Alan Bentley.

This display has been put together for us by Simon Carpenter, another local geologist.

Alan Bentley has made a truly remarkable collection of specimens throughout this lifetime and is in the process of donating most of his collection to the British Geological Survey; he has also donated some of his fossils to museums around the county.


Those pictured here are on temporary display at Radstock Museum; so please come and see this beautiful array of sea urchins and other intricate wonders while they are here.
