Roald Dahl’s Hidden Village Home


Take a stroll through the storybook town of Great Missenden, a tiny village in the county of Buckinghamshire in Britain, and the home of children’s literature’s grand-wizard, Roald Dahl, in the latter half of his life. For Hazlitt, Michael Hingston tours Great Missenden and reflects on the similarities between the little town and the settings in Dahl’s books, which became increasingly rural and homey as he neared the end of his career and life.
