Carroll birthplace put in trust’s care
THE Cheshire birthplace of one of England’s finest authors and academics has been handed over to the protection of the National Trust.
Lewis Carroll was born and raised at Daresbury Parsonage, which lies in a corner of a field two miles outside the village.
The double-fronted building had a lobby, parlour, study, schoolroom and seven upstairs rooms, but was destroyed by fire in 1891. The original foundation footprint and a well, however, are still preserved.
Now the Lewis Carroll Birthplace Trust, which has run the site for 11 years, has gifted it to the charity to ensure its future is secured.
