Model Railway Village

The railway company also provided housing, a school, a further education centre and more for its workers right next to the factory where they worked. These houses date back to 1842, but are substantial and the choice of stone used mean they look almost new today. I believe there are restrictions on what can and can’t be grown in the front gardens so that the appearance of the ‘village’ is kept consistent.

There are a few rows of these ‘back to backs’ which are all slightly different in appearance.
