The Shedworker's Bookshelf - Notes From Walnut Tree Farm

Shedworking is a huge fan of the work of Roger Deakin, not least because he slept and worked in a shepherd's hut. Sadly, he died in 2006, but his diaries have just been turned into a new book, Notes From Walnut Tree Farm. There's an excellent review of it by friend of Shedworking and editor of The Idler, Tom Hodgkinson (also a fan of shepherds' huts) at the marvellous Caught By The River (which is also a shop now), a site which defies categorisation so you need to go and look for yourself (all I will say is that if you like Shedworking, I'm sure you'll enjoy it, as it's all about the finer things in life).

The site also features marvellous photos of the farm and the shepherd's hut by Justin Partyka
