Beryl Dade Dolls' House Collection


Local lady Beryl Dade collected and refurbished dolls' houses for over 15 years.

Many were given to her in need of tender loving care - one was even found in a skip!

Beryl refinished many of the exteriors and created new and updated interiors with beautiful fixtures and fittings and of course ILLUMINATION.   She has developed a theme and a storyline for each illuminated miniature dwelling from teddy bears, to tea shops, restaurants and shops.  These are retold in the handy guides which can be seen and read when visiting the collection.

Thanks to her generousity the collection is now on view to Model Town visitors and is attracting a much larger audience than ever before.
