the Swiss Chalet, in which Charles Dickens wrote, in the grounds of Eastgate House, rochester, Kent. Transferred from his last home nearby at Gad’s Hill Place. The chalet was a present from Dickens’s friend Charles Fechter, delivered as a ‘flat pack’. Dickens installed 5 mirrors on the top floor, to fill the room with light, and wrote here his novel The Mystery of Edwin Drood, unfinished at his death in 1870. The chalet used to be approached by a tunnel under the road from his house.
