In Search of a Dream - new edition

Revised biography of Roye England

This new edition of ‘In Search of a Dream’ updates and extends the remarkable story of the life Roye England and his ambition to create, in miniature, a permanent record of a vanished rural landscape, in what became Pendon Museum. 

The original story is supplemented with additional chapters that show how Roye’s work has been continued after his passing and includes an illustrated Appendix that explores a forgotten, yet formative, phase of his modelling career. 

Richly illustrated and with many previously unpublished images, the book is a handsome tribute to one of the most influential model makers of the 20th century.
