Artist's Description

Charles Dickens chalet once stood in the grounds of Gads Hill Place, Higham, Kent where Dickens lived.

It was dismantled in 1864 and rebuilt in the council gardens of Eastgate House, Rochester, Kent. UK

The building has already been restored twice, but plans are in place to re-use it in time for the 200th anniversary of Dicken’s birth in 2012.

Dickens suffered what proved to be a fatal attack after leaving here for the main house on the afternoon of 9 June 1870. The Swiss Chalet was presented to him by his friend the French actor Charles Fechter at Christmas, 1864, in fifty-eight boxes, and was eventually constructed with the aid of the Lyceum Theatre’s French carpenter, M. Godin. Dickens so arranged the building that the second floor afforded him a view of the Thames, whose shipping he sometimes inspected with the aid of a telescope that he had placed in his study
