The Model Village in Bourton is closed whilst work takes place to restore the adjacent bar.

Andrew Lund-Yates, owner of the Model Village and the Old New Inn, has confirmed that work is underway to redevelop the bar and restaurant which has been closed for 10 years.

He has said that work at the Old New Inn is impacting on the entrance to the Model Village and as such it has been closed due to safety reasons.

The popular attraction has been closed since January 4 and is scheduled to reopen on either the 21st or 22nd of January.

A statement on the Bourton Model Village Facebook page read: “Our temporary closure is finished in just a few days. We can’t wait to see everyone visit the model village in all of its miniature glory.”
