MISS SAVIDGE MOVES HER HOUSE

Synopsis

May Savidge lived in a half-timbered house in Hertfordshire. When the council served her with a compulsory purchase notice to make way for a roundabout, May decided she had to move – but so did the house. So she had the whole thing dismantled and shipped to the Norfolk coast… and then spent the rest of her life rebuilding it, single-handed. Now her niece, Christine Adams, who inherited May’s house and completed it, tells her aunt’s story from the diaries and letters she left behind.
