Bourton-on-the-Water is a beautiful Cotswold village, created from local stone, and boasting a number of listed buildings - some of which are three hundred years old. However, it's not this village which has received listed status - it's the model replica of the village - built in 1936.

So why has it been Grade II Listed, and what will it mean for the village?
