There are over 35 individual buildings from all
over the UK depicting the different architectural styles from 12th century
onwards. Well known buildings such as Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, Red Lion Pub, and
the traditional Village Green are all featured.
The buildings and all of their components are
hand crafted on site, some of the larger and more intricate buildings taking
over 600 hours to complete. Our miniature steam train winds its way around the ornamental lake and is activated by an electronic eye on the bridge.
Amongst the model settings are dozens of
miniature figures. Some are playing cricket on the Village Green, enjoying a
pint at the Red Lion, attending the wedding ceremony at St Mary’s Church and
many others. The figures are all hand made and painted, requiring repainting
every 6 – 12 months. New figures are continually added to make our settings more
life like and add a touch of humour.
