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. They're nostalgic and trendy at the same time, a phenomenon which has turned into surprisingly hot property. Behind these colourful buildings is a history stretching back to the invention of the seaside and the first wheeled bathing machines of the mid-eighteenth century. "Sheds on the Seashore" is based on two journeys: one into the past, and the other a contemporary tour around the English coast. Together they tell the story of how beach huts came into being and why they remain so beloved by their twenty-first century owners. This title is presented with a forward by Wayne Hemingway.
