Merlin Crossingham, director for the Wallace and Gromit TV ads, aid: “This is a great way to have a look around 62 West Wallaby Street, the home of Wallace & Gromit. Usually when we are making a film we follow a rough plan of the house, but we use our creative licence to adjust details to our convenience.

“Windows, doors and even whole rooms have moved from film to film. It always seems like there is more room inside than there is on the outside. This time we have laid the house out so that it can be explored to find energy saving tips from npower.”
