Roald Dahl's Countryside Trail

Explore some of the Chiltern countryside that Roald Dahl loved.

A bit about us

Great Missenden was home to Roald Dahl for 36 years until his death in 1990. He wrote all of his children's books and many of his adult short stories in the Writing Hut he had built in his garden. Many of Roald Dahl's stories are based in and around the village. The Countryside Trail helps you to explore the local area and point out key sights that relate to these tales and his life.
