Campaign to save Roald Dahl's hut for future generations

The children's author Roald Dahl wrote many of his best loved stories, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, and James and the Giant Peach, in a small hut at the bottom of his garden in Buckinghamshire.

It was built in the 1950's and hasn't been touched since the author's death.

The hut is falling apart and a fund-raising campaign has been launched to preserve it for future generations.

Rebecca Jones reports.
