High Street Bourton on the Water Gloucestershire England
The Bourton Model Village is to found in the heart of the Cotswold village of Bourton-on-the-Water in Gloucestershire, England. The Model Village is a one-ninth scale replica of the village, containing all the buildings from the Old Water Mill (now the Car Museum) down to the Old New Inn and the ford. Bourton Model Village has always been famous for it's miniature bonsai type trees, which are carefully pruned to keep them to scale. | The village was created by a previous landlord of the Old New Inn, taking local craftsmen five years to build, and it was officially opened on the Coronation Day of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (the late Queen Mother) in 1937. | As a replica of Bourton the Model Village is of particular interest to historians and crafts people, we do not have trains, aeroplanes or gimmicks, it is a perfect replica of the buildings that were in existence in the 1930's, and demonstrates how they are used today as shops, the bank, the Victoria Hall etc. Both of our beautiful churches are reproduced in the Village.. stand close to each Church and you will hear the choir singing. The village also includes a running River Windrush, the stone bridges for which Bourton is famous, and of course the model of the Model Village itself sitting behind the Old New Inn.
