The Secret of Vauxhall Park

Vauxhall Park, in SW London, is a small but pleasant area with a very nice little café and a secret.

On the way, there is a very aromatic field of lavender that hosts a number of visitors (please click here if you can spare a moment to help save the UK bees from insecticides) .    The lavender was harvested in the past, distilled into oil and made available for purchase -see the Friends of Vauxhall Park.

And, at the eastern end, adjacent to the children’s play area, the only model village in London.  Albeit small, it is quite charming.
Model Village - Vauxhall Park
Created by Edgar Wilson in 1949, the only other surviving by the same person being in Melbourne Australia.  This one was restored in 2001 by local resident Mr Nobby Clerk. 

Such places do give rise to imagination (my excuse for what follows).

They’re both called Mini.  Would you Adam and Eve it.
