The model village is a one-ninth scale replica of Bourton-on-the-Water - built by an earlier inn owner and a small team of local craftsmen during the early thirties and opened on the Coronation day of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth in 1937. The village is complete with a miniature River Windrush, distinctive bridges, willows and chestnut trees. From the replica Church of St Lawrence can be heard the voices of the choir, and nearby is the model of the Baptist Church, the original of which was built in 1876. Built in the same warm Cotswold stone of the real village, the walls and roof tiles of the model buildings weather and mellow, so that each year the model becomes more and more realistic.
