Shepherd's hut event at the Weald & Downland Museum

Dave Morris, author of the excellent book Shepherds’ Huts and Living Vans, has been in touch about a shepherd's hut themed event at which he is helping out at the Weald & Downland Museum, (West Dean, near Chichester). "The last few have been great fun with a number of hut makers bringing along examples of huts that they can manufacture or restore," he says. "Glamping and hut B&B stands, shepherding tools, blacksmith demo, South Downs sheep, and much more, all in the glorious setting of the Weald & Downland Museum. If you have never been you really should - they have their own collection of around eight or nine different shepherds huts and living vans, along with a stunning collection of saved, relocated and resurrected original buildings and, importantly, sheds." Dave will be there both days doing a talk on the history of the shepherd's hut and also give a talk on restoration tips and things to look for and bear in mind if you are considering restoring or building a shepherds hut. Well worth adding to your diary. --------------------------------------------------------
