Location: Crystal Palace Park, Bromley, South London, UK
During the 20th century, the site began to fall into disrepair and were overgrown by foliage. Some effort was put into restoring the models in the 1950s, but it was not until 2002 that a full restoration was made. In the 1950s restoration, several of the models were moved around, and the "new" positions have been retained to this day. The models are valuable and unique, and has been officially recognized as such - the sculptures were made Grade II Listed Buildings (meaning "buildings of special architectural or historic interest") in 1973, and the status was upgraded to Grade I ("buildings of outstanding or national architectural or historic interest") in 2007.
The models created by Hawkins include both dinosaurs and a variety of other extinct animals. Originally Hawkins planned to build a number of further models, but his funding was cut by the Crystal Palace Company in 1855 after he had spent £13,729. As a result, and despite protests, including by The Observer newspaper, several planned models were, either left unmade, or scrapped after being half finished.
Today visitors to the park can see models of the following animals (in some cases, there is more than one model of an animal):
