The Roald Dahl Foundation
2005 and 2015
A listed former coaching inn and outbuildings set around a cobbled courtyard has been transformed into a Museum and Children’s Literature Centre to celebrate the life of Roald Dahl. The site comprises existing buildings ranging in date from the 16th Century to the 19th, with new additions, and a new building to the rear of the courtyard. The centre includes a BS5454 archive, a shop, café, flat and the museum itself. Natural ventilation and cooling has been used wherever possible.
