The rise of the shepherd's hut

A very nice piece about why shepherds' huts have become so popular again by our good friends at Very English which is well worth a browse (both the article and the site). Here's a snippet:
In the last few years shepherd’s huts have been raised in status from simple mobile agricultural dwellings to ‘glamping’ icons and quirky additional garden rooms, workspaces or mini ‘sheds’ in which to overnight and get back to basics. The sheddie movement brought them to the attention of a wider public during the last recession as a great way to create more space without needing to build on an additional room. At the same time, many farmers needing to diversify began investing in them as rural retreats for city dwellers anxious to escape the millstone of hi-speed internet connectivity and experienced a pared-back living experience. Less screen time, more green time.  Crikey, even Linda Snell in The Archers has her own one now.
