When the BBC first aired the T.V. series a great deal of interest was created around the show and the book, a merchandising company was created which commissioned (amongst others) Mudlen End to produce this 6 cottage set depicting places mentioned in the book.
They were modelled upon existing cottages in the Mudlen End series, with additional features, decoration and colours.
