Overview

This tranquil model village, situated alongside the Ashton Canal, was built by members of the Moravian Church in 1785. It's a fascinating little collection of elegant Georgian buildings, formally laid out with cobbled streets and stone paving.The architect behind the settlement was the famous Benjamin Henry la Trobe, who also worked on the Capital building in Washington DC. The settlement is still a living community with an active congregation and you can enjoy this charming place just by walking around or guided tours are available if you want to find out more about its history.
