George Bernard Shaw's writing hut suffers storm damage

Good and bad news for fans of George Bernard Shaw's iconic writing hut at Shaw's Corner in Hertfordshire. As the picture in sunnier times above indicates, his literary sanctuary now owned by the National Trust is surrounded by trees and when the winds brought down a nearby Scots Pine, it nearly took out one of our foremost shedlike landmarks. The good news is that the tree only gave the hut a mild whack and while it did damage the roof (pictured below and more images of the wreckage in the Welwyn and Hatfield Times), repair work looks like it should not be too extensive.
