Twelve Outstanding Examples of Pendon Modelling

We've picked examples of outstanding detailed modelling from the Vale Scene. They are the kind of details you might miss on a first visit - andeven a subsequent one!

In the Gallery below are photographs of each with a short introduction.

To help you locate them at the museum the number on each photo corresponds with a small red number on the window through which you see them at Pendon. They are in sequence as you go around the Vale Scene.

We have produced a leaflet you can pick up at the museum or you can print the pdf below at home.
