Er… good morning to you all, from Wollaton Hall.
Jam with your toast, anyone?

I could have stayed for hours in the collection storage rooms at the Nottingham Natural History Museum at Wollaton Hall. Thanks to co-curator Adam Smith for the tour. Only 0.2% percent of the collection is on display. There are SO MANY bones back here (and fossils, minerals, plants, eggs, herbs, shells, taxidermy, 'spirit' preserved animals…).
