Shaw's Writing Hut: photo essay


We've written before quite frequently about George Bernard Shaw's writing hut at Ayot St Lawrence, Hertfordshire (just up the road from Shedworking HQ) but never really presented a decent selection of images of it. So hopefully these photos from a recent sunny trip will remedy that. For more details go to the National Trust.

  1. Thanks for posting these. The actual setting for the shed, as much as the shed itself, looks like a great place to work.

  2. Such a great shed. I'm so sorry I have to use mine for storage. At least for now. Maybe I'll start writing one day - then I'll use my shed for that :-) Where to put all the stuff, though...

  4. I love this.
    We have just finished converting our shed on our farm in South Africa. I have posted pics - have a look!

  5. It's hardly surprising that GBS should opt to work in a shed that looked like a privy to judge from this story:
