Woodleigh Replica's - Tim Archer

WoodleighReplicas.jpgIt's been four years since Woodleigh Replica's shut down. The park is a curiousity which many Islanders today still hold dear. It features dozens of miniature replicas of buildings from the UK, including the Tower of London and St. Paul's Cathedral. It was lovingly constructed by
a veteran of world war one, Ernest Johnstone, and his son Archibald, a veteran of World War Two. There's a renewed interest in the property these days. A country and western singer formerly from Ontario has purchased part of the property and some of the replicas, and started fixing them up. Tim Archer hopes to be able to re-open the park next year. We reached him at his new home in Burlington PEI.
