Meredith's writing chalet, Box Hill, Surrey

Meredith's writing chalet, Box Hill, Surrey. Meredith, who had this two-room structure built at the top of the sloping garden of Flint Cottage, spent much time there in hermit-like seclusion, often sleeping and eating there. He filled it with tobacco smoke and would talk freely there to his characters.
