History of the Shepherd Hut

The Shepherd hut has been used for hundreds of years by shepherds, enabling them to stay near their flocks of sheep during the lambing and sheep rearing seasons.

The huts were simple structures made from materials available at the time: iron, wood, corrugated iron. They are on wheels, so able to be moved around.  Inside, the huts provided simple accommodation with sleeping, cooking and heating with windows and large doors to allow the shepherd to monitor their flocks. 

The use of the huts reduced in the 20th Century, but were still used in remote and northern areas of the UK. Mechanised farm machinery and the ability to move around reduced the need for the huts.

A very clever and practical solution!
