A tour of Simon Armitage's writing shed

We mentioned earlier in the month that the Poet Laureate Simon Armitage has launched a new BBC podcast The Poet Laureate Has Gone To His Shed in which he invites people from various creative walks of life into his shed for a chat. He has also done a little tour of his pretty windswept garden office (see below) in which he shows us around. Everybody has some unusual things in their sheds, but I wonder how many have a harmonium, a pizza oven, a daybed, books on birdspotting, a decent spread of music cassettes, and an impressive collection of sherry.

The first episode is out now with singer Guy Garvey from Elbow and you can listen to it here (warning, contains very strong language) who talks about his own shed history (spoiler: it's a greenhouse really).
Thursday posts are sponsored by Cabin Master: garden offices and studios to fit any size garden. Top quality contemporary or traditional buildings.
