Shed of the Year 2015, Episode 2 roundup

Last Sunday Channel 4 showed the second episode of this year’s Shed of the Year competition, with the “Unique” and “Historical” categories. For me the Treehouse and Anglo-Saxon Garden House stood out, but the Corrugated Cottage above all reminded me of the kinds of buildings put up by hutters and plotlanders in the 1920 and 1930s. A few of them still survive today – although more often in wood rather than corrugated iron. #shedoftheyear was trending again on Twitter during and after the programme, with thousands of people posting tweets with that hashtag, as I blogged about last week. During the week the tweets have continued, and some of them have linked to stories and blogs that are well worth a read: https://twitter.com/SandraLoy1/status/615238304401854464 https://twitter.com/MBWITW/status/615839926454722560 https://twitter.com/unclewilco/status/615083786049617920 Next Sunday, episode three has the “Pub” and “Budget” shed categories.
