England's Thamestown is trashy looking with rundown buildings and raggedy white people on every sidewalk and in every marketplace.

The Chinese Thamestown looks much cleaner and stylish!

The Chinese value the contributions to culture that are under threat.

Overall I'm impressed though there are a few things different from the buildings they copy, for example the woodwork in the "Black and White" buildings (Elizabethan period) is too even in thickness and the bricks in others are too uniform in colour.  

Other than that it seems to be a very good blending of styles with some parts reminding me of Lincoln and some of the canal systems and others of around Ledbury and so on.  

I just hope they solved using modern methods the issues of rising damp and so on that often makes such properties in the UK less than ideal.

Where in the UK is Thamestown?
