Shepherds huts were originally used to allow shepherds to stay with their flock as grazed. It allowed them to move their portable home to pastures new with the seasons. This particular one belonged to the naturalist Roger Deakin, one of the fathers of the 'wild' movement; a writer, documentary-maker and environmentalist whose intimate and personal portraits of the countryside quietly inspired a generation of nature writers, walkers and swimmers to explore the British countryside. He made his home at Walnut Tree Farm in Suffolk but would rarely be found the house. The grounds were strewn with sheds, old railway carriages and this shepherd's hut, where he would retreat to write and where he would often spend the night, enjoying the simple pleasure of waking amongst nature.
