And a man from King's Lynn was so impressed with the town's buildings, he spent the last 11 years making models of them. Fred Hall says each miniature takes between two and three hundred hours to complete.

In all Fred reckons he's spent 7,000 hours creating the mini King's Lynn, he spent 50 years as a carpenter.
Using lime wood and mahogany, Fred's creations are uncannily realistic Fred has made 20 models in the last 11 years.
Each one takes between 200 - 300 hours of work, although some take longer.
Many of them are housed at Marrriott's warehouse on the South Quay
King's Lynn was once England's most important port and a member of the Hanseatic League.
Fred still has one building to recreate, St George's Guildhall
