This talk will cover the long story from the beginning of Steve’s collecting career leading to the building of the new Etches Collection Museum at Kimmeridge.
Steve Etches is a plumber by trade, but has been collecting Kimmeridge Clay fossils for the past 35 years, all in his own spare time and housed privately at his home. The collection contains well over 2000 specimens, many of which of those are new to science and are of great palaenotological importance. The collection enjoys great patronage and endorsements from palaeontologists, geologists and scientists and it is a great achievement to be able to create a permanent home for the collection here at Kimmeridge in Dorset.
Steve Etches talk takes place at 6.30pm for 7.00pm on Wednesday 8th April. The event is FREE of charge but a donation of £3.00 is encouraged to cover costs.
