BEKONSCOT - United Kingdom
Bekonscot Model Village is the first model village in the world.
It consists of several small towns and villages, set in a beautiful miniature 1930's english landscape, complete with lakes, rivers, farms, fields, a huge railway system and a population of several thousands tiny residents!
The village is surrounded by meticulously maintained gardens, containing dwarf connifers and alpine plants, some of which have been growing since the 1920's.
The model village has begun as a hobby for Roland Callingham, a London accountant. His friend James Shilcock added a model railway. They lived in Beaconsfield and Ascot, so they decided to combine the names and call the village "Bekonscot".
