Literary Landmarks: Roald Dahl Home

Roald Dahl Home Roald Dahl was a British novelist, short story writer, poet, screenwriter, and fighter pilot. He moved to Gipsy Cottage, in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire, in 1954 and wrote most of his books there. His gypsy wagon in the garden of his house is where he wrote the book Danny, the Champion of the World in 1975. While the house is still occupied by his widow it is occasionally open to the public and there is a Roald Dahl Museum nearby.
