A Little Corner of England, in Shanghai

Jonny and Ming Ming live in Thames Town, Shanghai.
What used to be an area of farms and ducks is now a mind-boggling imitation of an English town
with a Gothic style church, mock Tudor, half timbered buildings,
medieval meeting hall, pubs, cobblestone streets and even old-style red telephone boxes..

A river winds through the town, complete with ferries and a floating restaurant.
Tearooms, coffee shops, pubs, even a fish and chip shop.
Statues as diverse as Winston Churchill and Harry Potter can be found there, along with one of Princess Diana, and even James Bond, 007.
There are red double decker buses, trams
along with zebra  crossings,
