Sheds on the Seashore Beach huts have become seaside icons. They may be small structures with basic facilities but we still love them. They feel quintessentially British, combining a shelter from our changeable weather with a place to brew a mug of tea. This title tells the story of how beach huts came into being and why they remain so beloved by their owners. Full description

I duly ordered a copy from Amazon following that recommendation, and I have since spent many very entertaining hours, "dipping in and out", so to speak, of it. It is a delightful book and I am absolutely delighted to have it in my collection.
Although far from an expert in Beach Huts, I have always had a massive soft spot for these so enigmatic items of our seaside heritage. This is because of my annual 2-week summer holidays, as a child, to Preston Sands in Torbay. In the 50's and 60's, my parents made the relatively short journey from Taunton to spend a fortnight there, and I recall all the very happy visits I had with them both as a child and young adult at that time. They always hired a beach hut for the same two "middle weeks" in August, as did a number of other families, and we met up year after year, forging long-lasting friendships.
Once again, may I say how much I have enjoyed the book. Thanks to Kathryn for spending so much time resourcing and writing it - it's a joy.
