Last Christmas we spent a week in a little place in the Cotswolds called Bourton-on-the-Water.
Here is a photo I took. Lovely.
However, don't be fooled. Although the little town is picture postcard perfect the photo is of the model village. This is a one ninth scale replica and words can't capture my amaze at the time and effort that has gone into its creation. When we visited we had the model village to ourselves (due to the persistent rain and cold weather and being shortly after Christmas) and it took over an hour to explore.
And yes, in the model village there is a model village of the model village!
Never underestimate the power of men in overalls with a desperate need to get out of the house.
