Babbacombe Model Village
Gardener Robert Gagie walks down the street at the Babbacombe Model Village near Torquay in Devon.

Since then the project has grown and now features an extensive range of buildings, working watermills, Georgian towns, tudor houses and classic Devon thatched villages and farms along with working railways, streams, waterfalls and an ornamental Lake stocked with specimen Koi carp.

Shetland Pony Downs Pints in Gloucester
Sparky the Shetland Pony downs a pint of Arkell 3B at his local the Globe Inn in Sandhurst, Gloucester. The Shetland Pony is fussy about his drinks and turns his nose up at Cider, Alcopops and Larger but is very partial to a pint of Arkells 3B. He earns his beer money by giving cart rides to the local children.
