Evening falls on the permanent fixtures of Bekonscot Model Village. All is well in the world - Mr and Mrs Harris watch another sunset from the terrace of their retirement home, where they will never grow any older; groundskeeper Joe enjoys a sly Woodbine by the pavilion; Len the Window finishes his last house of the day; Stan, Arthur, and George play dominoes at their usual table at The Barley Mow. And Edward sits on the edge of the bridge, waiting for the 5.44 from Ascot. The train rattles by. He never moves. #bekonscot#modelvillage#beaconsfield
Ever wondered what happens when we are closed? The answer is a lot of maintenance! These pictures show a building before, during and after restoration- it's amazing how rotten a model can be even when it looks fine on the outside.
