The small stable which was added to Merrivale Model Village in Great Yarmouth during the summer, is part of the ‘Great British Spraycation’ – a  2021 series of artworks by anonymous British street artist Banksy.

“The Banksy has been a life-saver for us as we’ve had to close so much due to the pandemic,” said Frances, who has run the model village since 2017.  

“We hope the sale will safeguard the future of the village.” 

 The tiny thatched stable, which features a rodent and the words ‘Go Big Or Go Home” scrawled on the side, appeared in the model village on August 6. 

 Frank and Frances didn’t notice the model until two days later when it was pointed out to them by a visitor. 

 It was later confirmed as a Banksy by Pest Contol. Banksy was seen working on eight pieces across Suffolk and Norfolk in a video entitled 'A Great British Spraycation' which was uploaded to his Instagram account.
