We also have toilet facilities for the disabled. Paths are quite narrow, but single buggies and wheelchairs have easy access. We are sorry, but unfortunately double buggies are too wide to fit round the paths. We are pleased to welcome dogs into the Model Village as long as they are kept on a leash and under control at all times.
