These miniature buildings depict Cumbrian houses and farms including classics such as Hill Top, the home of Beatrix Potter.
We have a replica of Slater's Bridge with the adjoining Clapper Bridge (Little Langdale) spanning over 50 ft long. All the buildings are lovingly hand crafted by Edward Robinson.
No machinery is used - only hand tools. The model village has been growing over the last 20 years, but it will be a few years yet before it is completed.
Over 100 buildings made from local Coniston slate. Houses, farms and barns create the Lakeland landscape.There are water features throughout the miniature village. The Oriental Building, which is our display area, overlooks the Oriental Garden.
I knew before I visited the Lakeland Miniature Village that I was visiting somewhere very special, but I didn't quite know at the time just how special this place was. Being quite small myself, I felt right at home here, and the amount of work that has gone intoattraction over the years is a credit to its owners, Edward andKathleen Robinson.They havepainstakingly built up thisattraction and once you've had a walk round, I guarantee you will want to walk around again. With only a few pounds to pay as an admission fee, this attraction not only has fabulous value for money for all the family, but the visitor experience that is to be gained from your visit is immense. Any attraction that is on your mind a few days after you have visited is most definitely a Top 100 Attraction. Not to be missed!
