Boulton & Paul restored revolving shed

Shedworking is indebted to reader Alan Field who indulges the staff's delight in revolving sheds and garden offices with these photos of his Boulton & Paul shed (the kind of rotating shed owned by George Bernard Shaw). "It was seeing a post on your site about a Boulton & Paul summerhouse," he writes, "that prompted me to do something about my own building which had long been languishing out of sight and, I feared, needlessly rotting quietly away. Despite being forklifted over bumpy acres (twice) this 1920s original B&P required only the doors rehanging before its first ever make-over this month. There's quality for you."
