NOMINATIONS are now open for the annual shed of the year contest in which Britons each year show their eccentric affection for their garden refuges.
Early contenders this year include a mini-pub shed called The Ballroom at Keyworth in Nottinghamshire.
Rivals include the VW-themed Pear Tree Wedding HQ in Northamptonshire, a bunker-like Biker’s Shed near Chichester and a Pirate Retreat in Croydon.
Some of the bizarre items that Brits horde in their sheds include ex-husbands’ possessions, retro cassette tapes and World War 2 gas masks.
The garden shed industry is now worth over £8-billion (R14.3-billion) to the British economy, with more than 21 million people in the UK now owning a shed.
