This site is a
personal web site run by John Saville and is not endorsed by Enesco or
the Lilliput Lane Collectors Club. All information is provided on a
"best efforts" basis and no responsibility can be taken for lost time or
finance if relied on.
- Many tens of thousands of people around the world own
have given models made by Lilliput Lane.
- Some may have wondered if there is a
building on which it is based ...and if so where it is.
- Deed cards give
some information...maybe the town.....but not a precise location.
- We believe this is the most comprehensive collection of
information identifying the buildings on which the models are based and
indeed the only place on the web where you can see pictures of (nearly) all
of the Lilliput Lane models made -- past and present.

site is becoming a reference point for people worldwide with queries on
LL items we are starting to include some of these on the site
|The website was originated by John
& Judy Saville but
with input from friends around the world.
We started when Judy was living in the
US and John brought her a cottage as a "taste of England".
When we moved
to England to live (with several more models) we thought it would
be fun to try and find some of them.
We not only found the
buildings but also many charming places well off the tourist track.
started to take photos of them for our own website and these still form
the basis of many links from this website.
