Hundreds of people gathered on West Runton beach today to watch the life sized articulated model of ‘Hugh Mungus’, based on the West Runton mammoth, whose fossilized bones were discovered on the beach in 1990.
Creator of the model, Suzie Lay, was delighted to bring ‘Hugh Mungus’ back to his spiritual home. Suzie was joined by the project’s engineer, Jeremy Moore, to operate the four metre high mammoth.
Onlookers followed the structure down the beach, as it made the journey toward the mammoth’s final resting place. If you didn’t manage to see the performance today, there is a final chance to see him this year at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse on Sunday 13 September 2015.
