Knitted village

The knitted replica of the village of Mersham, near Ashford, was created by the 40-strong Afternoon Club.

The model, which was made over a 23-year period, includes all facets of village life, including sport.

Pictures and cardboard templates of the properties and objects were used by the club to help them immortalise Mersham in wool.
