The National Trust Book of Sheds (Hardback)

£12.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

The National Trust looks after many of Britain's most important and beloved buildings - its sheds. They lurk in the shadow of grand country houses; they brave the elements on the tops of cliffs; they have inspired famous writers and housed everything from beehives to birdwatchers.







These beautiful, inspiring and eccentric structures are as individual as their owners. A Victorian coastal shed in Cornwall is where the Reverend Hawker went to write verse, and smoke opium. It's also the smallest building cared for by the National Trust. George Bernard Shaw's shed could be rotated throughout the day to make the most of the sun, while sculptor Barbara Hepworth used hers for napping in. Rather than a place in which to create, many of these sheds are the creation.







Alongside the literary writing dens and horticultural hideaways there are also floating sheds, coastguards' sheds, artists' studios, summer houses, beach huts, camping pods, bothies, teahouses, follies and much more.
