Shepherds' huts with kitchens

A nice blog post by Plankbridge takes a brief look at kitchens in shepherds' huts. Here's a snippet:
If a kitchen is the heart of the home, then a well-designed kitchen can be the heart of your hut too. Original huts, used by a solitary shepherd out on the downlands of Southern England, would have had basic food preparation facilities. Hut restoration projects completed over the years often included a wonderful small antique folding table with a lovely evocative patina; I like to think of the shepherd cutting his bread and cheese, and pouring his flagon of cider into his time-worn tankard. Our version of a folding table is inspired by those early originals, and is perhaps our most basic ‘kitchen’ for picnics or a ploughman’s lunch.
The post looks at three different types depending on your size of hut. Well worth a quick read, the rest of the post is here.
