Two Headed Lamb
Norwich Castle Museum

Billericay’s famous two-headed lamb has arrived safely at Norwich Castle Museum having been transported very carefully by Tanya Burrage who is the Cater Museum’s Project Manager for the lamb’s restoration. It is now in the hands of two wonderful gentlemen: Senior Natural History Curator David Waterhouse and retired Senior Natural History Curator Tony Irwin. 

Their initial impression is that the condition of the lamb isn’t as bad as feared, however, rather than a short 72-hour stint in the freezer they’ve decided that they’ll leave it in there for 2 weeks to be sure that all bugs or larvae have been dealt with in this first stage. Brrrrrr !!!
