Long Wittenham, Berkshire
At Pendon we aim to recapture, in detailed and colourful miniature, scenes showing the beauty of the English countryside as it used to be in the years around 1930. Realistically modelled cottages, farms, fields and lanes recall the peaceful country ways of that period. Cavalcades of trains, accurately represented, provide a fascinating record of the railways of the time. Pendon is being created entirely by volunteer modellers who work to the most exacting standards.
Pendon Museum is building an ambitious model of a typical part of the countryside of the Vale of the White Horse as it was in the 1930s. The model is still under construction, but already you can see a substantial part of the village of Pendon Parva built around an ancient hill-fort, the agricultural landscape surrounding the village, the derelict Wilts. and Berks. canal, and the Great Western Railway main line sweeping from the junction station at Pendon Parva through the fields on its way from London to the West Country and the Midlands.
