Winnie the Poohs spiritual home is up for sale. The historic Pooh Corner shop, a mecca for fans of the popular childrens character created by AA Milne, is on the market for 600,000. It was established in 1978 by owner Mike Ridley who started his collection with just a few souvenirs and now has the worlds largest Pooh paraphernalia. In the 1920s, Winnie The Pooh writer AA Milne lived in a farmhouse on the outskirts of Hartfield village, East Sussex, about a mile away from the shop. He set his stories about Christopher Robin, his bear and friends in and around nearby Ashdown Forest. The 300-year-old Grade II listed property features Piglets tearoom and gardens and a holiday flat as well as the gift shop. FN
