Village of My Heart

I have some very special friends but we live so far apart
So I've gathered them together in the village of my heart

This is the part of the landscape that runs around two sides of my village sky line and is now completed.

Set in a rather large plot, the building site being some 37 x 37 inches in size (though with a very good sized perimeter) . The village will run round the outskirts of the site. I have not as yet decided if there will be a centre to the village or if it will remain a barren wasteland but the village its self is very english. It has shops, a church and school house in the main street and on the outskirts there are residential houses, cute country cottages, farms and fields. Last night I dug the foundations for the very first cottage in my village. The building materials are from DMC this being a well known building material that can stand the wet that I think my English Country Village may experience from time to time.
Here are the first two pictures I have taken which show some of the landscape skyline.

in Boston, the center of the city is the Commons, which was originally a common grazing space for the livestock. The fields were outlying. Maybe your inner field is a common of some sort?
