Snapshot Sunday: Dickens' Chalet


This beautiful swiss-style chalet now stands in Rochester High Street just behind Eastgate House.  There is an appeal to raise funds in order to restore it as it is in danger of being lost.  Anyone who is interested in donating - or of spreading the news - can write or send a cheque to the following address:

Dickens Fellowship (Chalet Fund) 27 Amethyst Avenue, Chatham, Kent ME5 9TX

Thank you to Book Psmith for bringing this to my attention.

And I have to thank Elaine for posting about it too:) I just received Ackroyd's bio on Dickens and there are some photos of the inside of the Chalet where Dickens worked. It would be so wonderful to be able to restore and recreate that space. Thank you for the information and I will post about it as well to help spread the word.
