Conservation work in Roald Dahl's writing hut

The interior of Roald Dahl's writing hut and its contents were painstakingly transferred to the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in Great Missenden in 2011 - the reconstruction was very careful indeed, including preserving the rubbish in his wastepaper bin and even the dust. To keep it in good nick, ongoing work is vital. Pictured above is the museum's archivist Rachel White, carrying out a bug inspection during a regular environmental monitoring session.

Dahl’s iconic wing-back writing chair was a Parker Knoll and thousands of people sitting in it takes its toll, so it was recently refurbished by the Parker Knoll team and  Richardsons Re-Upholstery in Chesham

And here it is, back in its usual spot.
