This week's shed embodies one of the central concepts of allotmenteering - the make do and mend approach that was so necessary during world war two. It was sent in by Jim Nye of the blog Hoe Hoe Hoe, who writes:
This shed belonged to our oldest allotmenteer Fred who sadly had to give up his plot this year as it became to much for him.The new plot holders have demolished it, I personally felt that it should have had a preservation order put on it. So all that remains are my photographs.
On the other hand, some older allotment structures are quite literally about to fall down. or contain asbestos, as we've already seen, so there are occasions when sheds that have seen better days need to be replaced. Well done Jim for recording this one for posterity before it was dismantled (and, with any luck, the materials responsibly disposed of).
Next week will be the final shed for 2007, when I'll announce my favourite shed from all those sent in by readers - a copy of my book on allotments will be the prize who whoever sent it in. It's not too late to send in your shed, just drop me an email. You can see all of the sheds so far here.
