"Pendon Museum" Reading Things to Do Tip by Geoff_Wright
Reading Things to Do: 42 reviews and 44 photos
At the Pendon Museum the 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 situated in the village of Long Wittenham, near Didcot in Oxfordshire, England. Long Wittenham is very picturesque, as is its neighbour Clifton Hampden. Both villages are on the River Thames, and moorings are available for boaters. Three pubs in the village offer good lunches. Pendon has a small shop selling a variety of interesting books and other items, as well as light refreshments.
