It provided the solitude he wanted in order to do his work - writing.Here he wrote Man and Superman, currently enjoying success at The National Theatre, over a hundred years after it was written; St Joan which won him the Nobel Prize and the screen play for the film of Pygmalion for which he was awarded an OSCAR.Shaw entertained some famous visitors in his hut - Stuart Grainger and Vivien Leigh.
Shaw's ashes are scattered around it.
