‘In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion’, Albert Camus (1913-60)


A photographic love letter to the joys of the humble (and not so humble) British shed. Discover over twenty-five of the most inspiring, historical and award-winning sheds, hides and huts selected from around England, Wales and Scotland. Exploring sheds for practical storage, creative spaces, places to get closer to nature, and fun. From the mechanical marvel of George Bernard Shaw’s rotating writing shed in Hertfordshire to a tiny poetry hut perched on a Cornish cliff; the towering net shops at Hastings and Hidcote’s tool-laden garden shed; a remote coastguard’s hut in Gwynedd and evocative boat sheds at Lindisfarne; to ‘Sheds of the Year’ and stately follies. Britain is thought to have 11.5 million sheds, at a greater density than any other country, reflecting the seemingly universal love of pottering in these islands.
