Henry Moore's rotating garden office studio

Henry Moore Studios & Gardens at Perry Green have recently refurbished the sculptor's Summer House (pictured above) which was one of a number of studios and sheds in which he worked from 1940 onwards. Moore bought the Summer House in the early 1950s and erected it in the Hoglands garden. According to the charity: "It provided him with an informal space for drawing connected to the outdoors and with plenty of natural light. Originally mounted on a turntable, it could be rotated to change views and find the best conditions at different times of the day." Sadly, it is now static though still very much worth a visit.
