Up close and personal inside Roald Dahl's shed

The inside of Roald Dahl's writing shed has been the subject of intense scrutiny over the last week but how many people have actually had a good look at the objects which surrounded the popular writer? The answer is very few indeed, so The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre were good enough to supply Shedworking with some detailed images of the contents. Pictured above are some of the objects on the table in his shed including his hip bone while below is his foil ball, made up of hundreds of his favourite chocolate bar wrappers.

Below is Dahl’s writing board that sat across his lap.

And here are two shots of the collection of objects on his table

  1. Hola, quizás os interese saber que tenemos una colección que incluye el relato 'Parson’s Pleasure' de Roald Dahl en versión original conjuntamente con el relato 'The Other Two' de Edith Wharton.

    El formato de esta colección es innovador porque permite leer directamente la obra en inglés sin necesidad de usar el diccionario al integrarse un glosario en cada página.

    Tenéis más info de este relato y de la colección Read&Listen en
