Hullo there! You’ve probably arrived here by hearing about it on BBC Local Radio, searching for model villages, or reading my witterings on Twitter.
If you have memories of a model village (especially if it’s one that’s now closed, or you’d seen in a private garden) I’d love to hear from you. I’m building a map in readiness for a book and new website documenting each of these miniature villages, but more are turning up, week after week.
Each model village reveals a fascinating story about their existence, ultimate demise and of course the wonderful imaginations of the people who created them.
Please, do get in contact:

Here’s a map that I’ve been working on; Can you can help me add more locations?
(I’m still trying to work out how to bugger about with this blog. Sorry it’s so clunky.)
