Traditional joinery methods are used to make a sturdy frame-work with natural sheep wool insulation

The origins of the Shepherds' hut goes back over 200 years when herdsman of sheep and cattle could live near and tend to their animals as they were moved around the farms according to the seasons.  Originally horse-drawn they later were adapted to be pulled by traction engines and then tractors, but a change in farming methods and transport around the time of the Second World War saw them fall out of use.  Corrugated iron was used as early as the 1830's for its durability and ease of maintenance, often a small woodburning stove would be included in the hut to warm the farm workers on freezing mid-winter nights.

The cast iron wheels and draw-bar are cast by a small foundry in Dorset using patterns from the 19th century

The beautifully handcrafted interior can be fitted with a variety of features such as double or bunk beds, cupboards, tables and desks.  Free standing furniture also works well.
