This morning I visited the Redbridge Museum and Heritage Centre in Clements Road, Ilford, in the town centre. It’s a small civic museum featuring objects and ephemera from the borough of Redbridge from the Victorian era up to the 1990s. A fascinating snapshot into the history of our area, ideal for local history buffs and schoolchildren studying history projects. There’s no dino skeletons here but there’s a mammoth skull displayed just outside the museum.

A fearsome dinosaur that actively preyed on prehistoric fries and Archaeopteryx McNuggets. It had puny hands though, so couldn’t hold a Big Macosaurus, even if it could swallow it whole.

Me and a friend are planning to go to the Barking Showcase cinema for the opening show of the aquatic horror The Meg when it is released next month. Basically you have a massive prehistoric shark, the Megalodon, that likes to chomp submarines. It’s Jaws on steroids!

Circa late Jurassic era – Gifvilleasaurus shahii – lived in primordial fern forests in what is now Gifville. It fed upon horse chestnuts and wild coriander (didn’t do ferns, really) and with its lean and muscular hind legs, this bipedal dinosaur as capable of hunting down unusual and elusive proto-GIFs. It also liked to play the sitar. A mortal enemy of the fat purple dinosaur, Barney.
