Might one of your villagers have a (simplified!) formal knot garden?...a beehive?...garden archway thingy which climbers ramble over?

Love the idea of a chapel/church with gravestones.

I too thought of a Church and as these would traditionally be set at the "top" of the village you could use the Lilac(?) one with the tree (toppish leftish), with what appears to be a blackish roof (PDs).
Maybe a post box or Post Office???  -<

It could be a little Emmerdale, with a helicopter about to crash into the village hall as a wedding is underway ...

Lovely ideas but the village is made, so ideas must fit in ...

I'm going to try and adapt the top lilac with polka dot roof into a church ...

as the Greeks believe, Church's are always as close to God as you can get them and this one has lots of sky to fill.
I might get a pub out of one of the 'vacant' houses ... and a natural pond, maybe in the scrappy land at the bottom of the quilt ....

mmnnn I think its Village life for me today then !!!
