Sheds are necessary.  Give a bloke a shed & he'll go & invent something (blokes from the British Isles, anyway).  Christopher Cockerill and the Hovercraft, Barnes Wallis and the bouncing and earthquake bombs (albeit a VERY big shed with a swimming pool in it), Frank Whittle and the Jet Engine to name but a few.

There's just something about a Shed and a Cup of Tea that makes brillant inventions spring to life.  You just don't get the same vibe in the great outdoors.  Everyone should have a shed.


Hi Chica,last year we got a new allotment and shed,its on a hill and we were   advised to tie it down,Paliesglide and one or two more gave me good advise,this winter on our allotment  3 sheds have now been damaged by wind one very sevearly,mine has 2 scaffold poles 3 feet into the ground with a heavy duty mooring rope fastened over the roof and onto my waterbutts and one or two said i was going over the top, but our shed is still there and like you Kettle and all the gubbins for a cuppa and with our old lounge carpet on the floor, which i might add may bring a smile from some but this winter its made a great difference with my cuttings
