Lottery Cash Boost for Dorset's £80m Jurassica Dinosaur Attraction

Dorset’s £80m dinosaur-themed attraction has been given a cash boost of £37,300 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

This is one small step towards the creation of the Jurassica subterranean geological park in Broadcroft Quarry in Portland.

Ambitious plans for the World Heritage Site include a giant glass and steel roof spanning the 40m deep quarry.

According to the BBC, the attraction will focus on three geological time periods. It will feature an aquarium with robot swimming plesiosaurs, fossils and interactive displays.

The lottery grant has been earmarked for the development of a trail through the site.

Sir David Attenborough is the project’s patron and Sir Tim Smit of Eden Project fame is its trustee.
