Lorne House was built in 1876 is the childhood home of the Rev W Awdry, creator of the Thomas The Tank Engine stories. He later acknowledged that it was living at Journey’s End, lying in bed listening to the steam trains climbing Box Hill, that provided the inspiration for his classic tales. The house is a large Victorian villa which has been beautifully restored to offer every modern comfort. Box is on the edge of the Cotswolds and is just 6 miles (10 km) from the historic city of Bath.
