    This is a world of elderly ladies and shopping bags, firemen battling blazing thatched roofs, days out at the seaside, and cricket on the village green. The people, only inches tall, are all residents of Bekonscot, a model village set firmly in a 1930s time warp. Everyday life, from the mundane to the extraordinary, carries on unchanged. Originally built by a London accountant to entertain his house guests, it opened to the public in 1929. This is a fascinating photographic tour through this world-famous folly that stands as a tribute to English eccentricity, humour, determination, and craftsmanship.
