Pendon Museum


At Pendon we 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. The photograph above shows the work of the late Roye England, the Museum's founder. It is just one of the many fine model buildings in the Vale Scene.

Pendon is enjoyed by people of all generations and with many different interests. You can watch a fascinating collection of model trains go by on the Dartmoor Scene, or spend hours taking in the detail of the model village in the Vale Scene. Our volunteer staff is there to make your visit as enjoyable and informative as possible, and will be only too happy to tell you more about anything you see at the Museum.
