Tudor Village in Fitzroy Gardens

In the middle of Fitzroy Gardens is this village modelled by Edgar Wilson, a pensioner from Hamilton Road, Norwood, London, England. He did this task as a hobby.

The buildings represent a typical Kentish village during the “Tudor” period of the English history. There are 28 concrete buildings in the village.

This village is composed of thatched cottages…school, barns, church, hotel and public buildings.

Unfortunately the village is enclosed so we can’t go near it, but that is Jack and Pat behind the gate so you can imagine the size of the houses.

    That’s very clever and they really do look like Kent cottages, especially the flint ones 🙂 A shame though that you can’t go inside for a closer look.

    1. Teresa says:

      Very clever indeed.

      Yeah that was what I was hoping for when I went there … to walk through the houses.Well I guess they really wanted to preserve it.
