Model village


Here are some pictures of the model village i visited with friends recently.
The village is in Bourton on the water, each building is made of stone and represents buildings in the real village.
There is even a model of the model of the model village.

Re: Model village


That's amazing Shelley, it looks so realistic.

I've visited the Model Village in Babbacome, Devon a few times and it always amazes me the amount of detail they put into the models.

Re: Model village


Oh Shelley, that brings back memories - I went to Bourton-on-the-water with my parents when I was a child many, many years ago. I wonder if I have any photos still ......... Those buildings are so beautifully crafted.

Me too

I also lived near Bourton for a while and visited there a good number of times and I've never heard of this model village. It's beautiful, as is its full-sized counterpart.

Re: Model village


thanks Felix. Bourton on the water is a lovely place, found some of the shops expensive.I didn't know where Downton was filmed.
