A History of the World in 100 Sheds

Inspired by the BBC Radio 4 programme 'A history of the world in 100 objects', John 'Shedman' Davies is asking people which sheds they would choose as having a real impact on world history. Anyone can contribute their thoughts and suggestions, pictures and links. See John' site Shed World for more details but here's a snippet:
"From Lao Tzu to Gillis Lundgren, the Abbé Marc-Antoine Laugier to the Unabomber, from the baby Jesus to Frank Whittle, let's have your suggestions for the sheds that have really had an impression on world history. There'll be a prize for the Top Ten entries."
Well worth a browse.

John's main Shedman website has been updated with new events and activities including Second World War Shedman in Eastbourne and the Pigbaby event in Cooksbridge near Lewes ion May where he will be appearing with another chronicler of shedlike atmospheres in verse, Matt Harvey. The whole event is in aid of Save the Children.
Thursday posts are sponsored by Atelier, garden studios which are sustainable, stylish, flexible, functional and future proofed. Click here for more details.
