Original and best plesiosaur...

The pliosaur in the Natural History Museum London is merely a cast of one found at Kettleness: the original somehow found its way to Dublin. This one is an original, also found at Kettleness, and esitmated 180 million years old and displayed in all its incomplete glory in Whitby Museum in Pannett Park. They have a fantastic collection of jurassic fossils, most collected within a 10 mile radius of Whitby and a good few from Runswick Bay.
