THE NEW TIN HAT SHEDS THAT ECHO WW2
The Posh Shed Company, creators of some of the finest hand-crafted sheds, are launching a completely new concept in garden storage to complement their classic Posh Shed collection.
The Tin Hat range is a throwback to war-time Britain when practicality usurped all else, and is designed to appeal to those seeking a traditional shed - solid, yet understated in appearance and built to a standard which will guarantee years of practical service.
There are two designs to choose from in the Tin Hat range. The curved roof of 'The Anderson' and the traditional lean-to, 'The Gardener'. Both are made of tanalised timber which ensure long term protection against the elements, the window frames and solid door are finished in a durable stain with sturdy bolt locks.
The pre-treated timber does not require painting; it lightens to a shade of honey brown and over time weathers to a natural silver. Perhaps the biggest feature of the range which heralds traditional is the galvanised corrugated sheet roof which is also finished with guttering.
The modular design allows customers to configure their shed to the size best suited to their needs and space. The Gardener has the modular option of additional windows and external shelving.
The Anderson costs £1,300 and The Gardener, with the package of two windows and external shelving costs £2,865.

Those of you who follow us on Facebook may already have seen the first of our Summer Competitions. We’ve teamed up with three popular gardening magazines who are offering people the chance to win one of our new Southwold sheds.
We launched the Southwold at the Country Living Fair in March this year and we’ve had a great reaction to our beach hut inspired Posh Shed.
We featured four Southwold’s at the show in March and then took them to GROW in London in June. They are all finished in a colour from our standard paint range, Dusky rose, Pearl, Forget me not and Spearmint. The Dusky Rose finish has already been claimed but we thought we would give the others to some of our favourite garden magazines so they could offer them in competitions over the summer.
The Southwold competitions will feature in the August editions of the following magazines; Period Ideas, Waitrose Garden and Garden’s illustrated.
We look forward to hearing the results – good luck everyone

We were thrilled when we were approached by the television programme “Love your Garden” to design and build a Posh Shed for one of their viewers. This is the second time they have asked us to design something for them and it’s great to have a nod of approval from gardening guru Alan Titchmarsh.
The shed we designed for the programme this year (2016) was created for a worthy applicant. A lovely lady who has been passionate about gardens, gardening and “growing things” all her life.
Mrs Newbold was born in Leeds in 1926 and spent her early childhood helping her parents grow fruit and veg in their allotment. In the middle of the Second World war, at the age of 17 in 1942 she volunteered for the Women’s Land Army and was sent to Malton in Yorkshire where she got stuck into gardening on a much larger scale … nothing short of farming in fact, as she and others, heaved bales of hay, loaded carts and processed corn to name but a few of their responsibilities.
Gardening and growing things has always been a part of Mrs Newbold’s life and at the age of 90, she is still keen to share her gardening knowledge and regularly goes to schools and museums to talk to children about her history with the Women’s Land Army and the pleasure she has derived from gardening throughout her life.
Sadly, in recent years, age and arthritis have made it more difficult for Mrs Newbold to garden and witnessing the distress that this caused, a friend put her name forward to the “Love your Garden” programme. Her garden has now been revamped to create level pathways and low maintenance growing areas and includes a Posh Shed as a focal point and storage hub.
The Bespoke Posh Shed sits in a corner of the garden. It is painted in Posh Elephant which really sets off the slate effect tiled roof. There is double door access under a central gable which provides additional head-room and makes it easy to carry things in and out.
There are opening windows each side of the door to let in plenty of light and provide ventilation when required. The rear wall is window free so tall pieces of gardening equipment can be easily stored and plenty of floor space for all Mrs Newbold’s pots and tools.
We hope that this lovely lady enjoys her Posh Shed and her new garden for many years to come.
