    Shed Features

    The shed is a roughish replica of the officer's quarters on the Golden Hinde. My boys wanted a place where they could party, read and study (ha ha!) in the garden.

    They saw the full-size replica of the Golden Hinde in London and decided to build their own version. I mean, if it was good enough for Sir Francis Drake to party on round the globe, it was definitely good enough for them.

    Other Shed info

    The shed was built by my sons, William, Nicholas and Oliver Scott. The leaded windows were bought from garage clear-out near Bishop's Stortford, which, coincidentally, is where the oak for the real Golden Hinde came from in the mid 1500s.

    The boys' replica is built on stilts hidden behind it's timbers. When it rains heavily, the dried-up old river bed underneath the shed fills with water, so the shed looks like it is floating. There is a long, windy gangplank on poles so you can enter the boat.

    It's a great venue for partying - provided boozy guests don't lose their footing and go overboard. It has a moose head and an electric seagull that plays sea sounds and the shrieking of seagulls when you press its head. It has gun ports, some rigging with hand-made pulleys and a cannon that works...sort of. Well, not really, but it looks like it does
