    Shed Features

    I'm a writer and work in it, but also sleep in it during the summer. Friends stay over sometimes, and we spend evenings in, talking and drinking the occasional glass of wine.

    I got it for my 50th birthday, when I'd fully grown out my hair to be it's natural grey colour. It was a standing joke that I've embraced being a crone, and as I'm a hippy type and live a few miles from Pendle Hill I named it Malkin Tower, which was the name derisively used by locals to refer to the shack in which the Lancashire Witches lived.

    Other Shed info

    Everything inside it was free, recycled, and/or a gift. I'm disabled and mostly housebound, but it provides a completely different space and energy to my little terraced house, so it serves as a little holiday cottage that's about ten feet away from my back door.

    The front of my house is on a fairly busy road, but behind it are fields, woods and parkland so at night I hear the owls and foxes.

    The decor is a little tongue in cheek, but everyone loves its witchy creepiness.
