Description
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 North Norfolk coast… and then spent the rest of her life rebuilding it, single-handed. Her fame spread around the world. Antiques Roadshow broadcast, unprecedentedly, two features about her house. Her niece, Christine Adams, who inherited May’ s house and completed it – at the cost of her own marriage - tells her aunt’s life story from the voluminous diaries and letters she left behind.
