A knitted replica of a Kent village with 100 features including teenagers smoking in a bus shelter has been put up for sale.
The model of Mersham, near Ashford, has been knitted by members of the village's 40-strong Afternoon Club over the past 23 years.
The group has raised about £10,000 for their village hall by exhibiting it.
But the creation is now to be split up and sold off because it has become too large to be transported.

Knitted Village for sale
From the BBC:
I am split between admiration for the knitting and sadness that it is going to be split up and sold. This sort of artwork should be retained together and on permanent exhibition. I really hope an art gallery or museum picks it up; it's of historical as well as artistic significance.
