Bekonscot is the oldest and in my opinion most beautiful model village in the world.
It has been run by the Church Army since 1978. Bekonscot was first created by Roland Callingham in the 1920s. Its name is an amalgam of the village Beaconsfield and Ascot. It has been the setting of many UK television shows and children's author, Enid Blyton lived in Beaconsfield and knew the model village well.
We visited with our 2 year old grandson recently and he loved it, especially the train sets running round the site. This place appeals to young and old alike. The owners claim that it is stuck in a time warp. Come and see England like it used to be.
This photo view gives a quirky glimpse of a time sadly lost and a visit gives a warm glow of nostalgia.
