Photo article from the Welsh Hovel - the asbestos shed from the Jungle, inside and out

When we first arrived at the Welsh Hovel, you could barely see this shed which was buried amid foliage at the near end of what was known as the jungle. Today you can see it in its full horror and it is pretty ghastly, is it not?

Inside there are sheets and sheets of glass from when there was a builder’s merchant here. They are filthy but if anyone is interested they are all for sale. There is wood for which there is an obvious use and some items that will come in handy when the chickens (or ducks, or geese) arrive next year. 

For 2021, the plan is to saw the bases of the tree and to tear it down. In 2022, the shed itself will go. Most of it is made from asbestos so that will be a joy to remove. The corrugated iron will be easier and might make me a few quid.
