The seed of shedworking is often sown during infancy and in my case Jennings' Little Hut by Anthony Buckeridge is probably ultimately the inspiration for this site. Jennings, for you poor unfortunates who have not yet discovered him, is a young boy at boarding school who has a series of mild but entertaining adventures with his sidekick Darbishire. I had the pleasure of interviewing Buckeridge a few years ago and you can read the piece here, but more importantly, Jennings' Little Hut has been serialised on BBC Radio 4 this week and you can listen to them again here in 15 minute chunks. I heartily recommend them.
