Biffo the Gargoyle has taken up residence in the Museum Garden. At least the Head Gardener thinks that he “bears” [groan] some resemblance to the one-time cover star of the children’s comic, the “Beano”. Biffo was carved and donated by Gordon Blackwell from Blandford. Gordon has been a great contributor to our Heritage Lottery Funded Great War Project and the 2014 exhibition from which the Project grew. Supporting Biffo is THE stone – weighing 14lbs – found by Ken Howe for last year’s Rule of Thumb exhibition on the History of Weights and Measures. Biffo has joined the Garden Gallery newly published on the Museum website.
