Dickens' writing chalet

On a festive (if rather overcast) trip to Rochester, we naturally called in at Eastgate House, former home of the novelist Charles Dickens and his writing chalet in which he wrote five of his works (while it was in the garden of his other Rochester home, Gad's Hill). It's now in urgent need of repair to preserve it and currently supported by steel props to keep it secure. Fundraisers are trying to get together £100,000 to get it open and running again. More details here.
