Forever England

These images document the inhabitants of Bekonscot Model Village, the world’s oldest model village, which opened in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire in 1929. They show us a world whose undisturbed Groundhog Day workings are extremely comforting: no one is struggling with their destiny, and nothing ever changes – as in a photograph, these miniature people, streets and houses are trapped in time.

These and further images from this series were published in the book Forever England (Dewi Lewis Publishing, Stockport: 2006) ISBN 1-904587-305
