Bessbrook was the first model village in the British Isles. Bessbrook was founded on the Quaker principles of the three P’s, no pubs, no pawn shops and no police station. To this day, there are still no pubs within the original village limits. The model was then adopted by the Cadbury family who developed the far more famous model village of Bournville; let’s face it chocolate is generally, more appealing than linen.
