George Orwell centre set to open in Henley


A new exhibition centre dedicated to acclaimed writer George Orwell is set to be opened in Oxfordshire.

It will be in a chapel at Fairmile Cemetery in Henley and will show what the town was like when the Animal Farm author was growing up there in the early 1900s.

It is hoped the centre could be open by autumn 2013.
