Postcard from the Isle of Wight - the model village!
We used to take our children to the model village in Godshill umpteen years ago, but it's still just as wonderful as ever.
It actually *is* a model of the village...and contains a model of the model of the model.
The topiary is quite something in itself.
1:10 turns out to be perfect meerkat size!
Cricket on the village green...
Look at the dog being a nuisance! There was (of course) a soundtrack for the bandstand - and hymns issuing forth from the church!
There's a wedding at the model church - notice the cottages in the foreground?
These are the real-life cotages in front of the real-life church - if you look at the top of each roof, you can see they've even copied the detailing on the thatch!
