Going mid-week and in term time meant that Bourton wasn't too busy, so our first stop was the Model Village. The last time I visited this place was in the 1970s when I was a child; I have hazy memories of the village so was keen to revisit it.
Monkeychild loved the minature buildings, especially kneeling down to look into the shop windows. She chose her favourite house, which wouldn't have looked out of place in BBC1's Lark Rise to Candleford (scaled up of course!).
