Model Village

Created over 20 years ago in the scenic setting of a listed walled garden, Wiston-le-Dale model village provides an enchanting scene for the imaginative mind.

The model village comprises over 75 buildings including a castle, wharf, mill, church, town hall, various shops and many houses and cottages of varying architectural merit! The railway, canal and lanes are landscaped with miniature trees and flowering plants to complete a peaceful and harmonious picture.

Free admission, with all donations given to two local charities for young people, 'Rainbows Children's Hospice' and the 'Sir Andrew Martin Trust'. Over 20,000 has been donated since 1996.

The Model Village can be found at Wistow Rural Centre and is approached through Ken Bailey's Plant Centre.
