After a good day and a half spent at the Slimbridge Reserve it was time to head for home on the Sunday which sadly arrived as a dull, cold and rainy day! A contrast to the previous two sunny albeit very cold days spent in Gloucestershire.
On the way home we called at Bourton-on -the Water to visit the Model Village. This was to be my second visit to the Model Village, the first being many moons ago when I was in Junior school and on a day trip that also included a visit to WWT Slimbridge. I remember feeling like a giant in this tiny village and likened it to how Gulliver must have felt after he was shipwrecked and washed ashore on the island of Lilliput, the islanders were only 6" tall! The Model Village did to be honest now look a little jaded and in need of some restoration but as it is over 75 years old I doubt much can be done to improve it. Maybe a sunny day would have brought out the best in the Model Village
