Lilliput Lane's model "Out For A Duck" is in fact in the cricket pavilion in the village of Clavering which is adjacent to Arkesden (which is the site according to the "title deed").

A compensation for several hours taken looking within Arkesden was The Axe & Compasses pub. Mind you Clavering has "The Cricketers" which is in is run by Jamie Oliver's parents.

We believe that Lilliput Lane's "Tooth Fairy" is based on this annexe Chestnut Lodge
If so, the modeler has embellished the building considerably  
There is a ford outside  
The Church The Village Sign
"The Cricketer's" pub is run by Jamie Oliver's parents

and is in the Good Pub Guide 2008.

We had lunch there May 22, 2006
