The Mini Britain map: all miniature Britain in one place. But I need YOUR help

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.)

  1. Are you including Model Villages in Ireland? There is a fantastic Model Village located in Clonakilty in West Cork. It details the growth of West Cork towns that grew along the old railway line between 1930 and 1950. The models are exceptional and it is a great insight into the history of west cork. They have a beautiful road train that takes you on a tour of Clonakilty town. A great attraction for all the family.

I'd love to hear from you - please leave a comment!
