Akroydon sounds like the name of some kind of extinct dinosaur...teeth like akroyd?

:-) It's the name given to Colonel Akroyd's model village - those houses are part of it! Model here meaning ideal rather than miniature, certainly planned! The most famous example is Saltaire near Bradford built by Sir Titus Salt!

Yes, of control! No drinking allowed in Saltaire - at least back then! :-) Not there's a pub, in Bradford, called Sir Titus Salt!

I don't like being controlled. Sounds like the drinkers got the last word though :)
