This is the design for the shelter drawn by Richard Horne, the craftsman who built it.

In 2007 it was decided that it would be very useful to have a shelter in the yard at the entrance to the garden, to provide some protection for volunteers – both those who gathered on Tuesdays to work in the garden and those who collected entrance fees for various events.
The design was based on a drawing (no.653) in the 1898 catalogue of Boulton and Paul. The drawing was of a shelter in front of a stable. The maker was Richard Horne (cf PGPT094/5). Oak was the timber used. The photograph show the components before assembly on site.
