Old Ladies Knit Entire Village

A gang of old ladies have managed to complete their 23 year old dream of creating their entire village of Mersham, Kent in a woollen orgy of knitted residences.

It all started with a couple of cottages and some pigs, and has ended up with more than 60 properties, complete with wheelie bins, outdoor loos, gas tanks, cars in the driveways and even a smart red telephone box.

When it was finished, the village was put to work - displayed at fetes and craft fairs, where it raised more than £10,000 for the village hall fund. Sadly, the numbers of original knitters in the Afternoon Club have dwindled. 'There were about 12 of us to start, but most of them have popped off now,' says Joyce.

Sheer brilliance! Big up da granny crews!
