Shed Quiz: Name That shed

It's time for a new regular post and it's going to be a quiz, Name That Shed. Each Saturday I'll be putting a new shed up and you have to try and identify a) where it is and b) what it's for or who it belongs to. Here's the first, a lovely photo by Elspeth Thompson. Answer on Monday.

    These look very much like the net shops in the old town in Hastings..?

    My guess is they are in the Netherlands and they are sheds for very tall people.

    Do I get an extra point for the linking these beach huts with Beatrix Potter?


  5. Net shops, Rock a Nore, Hastings, East Sussex.

    Originally used for drying the fishing nets of our extensive beach-fleet but now used for general storage and listed for their protection.

  6. My cousin has a shed that looks like this in his backyard. It's two stories, long and skinny like the ones in your image. The bottom is for storage of stuff and the top is a play house for the kids. It's actually pretty cool looking.
