Edward & Kathleen's Lakeland Miniature Village

(Edward & Kathleen Robinson / lakelandminiaturevillage.co.uk)

The Lakeland Miniature Village is an unusual yet fascinating attraction. The vision and creation of retired builder Edward Robinson, the village is set within the large garden of Robinson himself, who suffers from ME and creates the buildings as a form of therapy.

Along with his wife Kathleen, the two have opened up their garden and this unique collection to members of the public. Featuring over 100 buildings in miniature, the Lakeland Miniature Village is a great way to pass an hour or two, perhaps in combination with a visit to the nearby Holker Hall.

Things To See

Each one of the buildings that you will find in the Lakeland Miniature Village is a recreation of a famous Lake District building and all have been lovingly handmade by Edward Robinson using locally sourced slate. Visitors can roam free through the village and admire Robinson’s handiwork and attention to detail. For Robinson, this is about giving back to his local community and bringing back to life the Lake District buildings of old.

His creations include replicas of Beatrix Potter’s home Hill Top, Windermere’s Baddeley Clock, and the ancient pedestrian Slater Bridge from Little Langdale, as well as local castles, churches, farms and other buildings. In addition, there is a full size oriental building overlooking an oriental garden. Children in particular will no doubt love feeling like a giant, and there is a quiz for them to complete.
