The ultimate house for Thomas the Tank Engine fans!
The home where beloved children’s writer Rev Wilbert Awdry lived and wrote about his iconic trains has gone on sale for £895,000.
The Old Vicarage at Emneth, Norfolk, has eight bedrooms, five reception rooms and 1.5 acres of private grounds. Rooms include a conservatory, wet room, kitchen-breakfast room and a games room and there is also a cellar.
But it will be the property’s study which will most interest fans of Thomas the Tank engine as this is the room where Wilbert Awdry, who invented the cheeky steam locomotive to amuse his son, wrote 13 books during his time as the local vicar.
The room contains some train models and many books by the Reverend Awdry, who preached at St Edmund’s Church in Emneth.
