Shepherd's Hut - Landscape Painting
Historians have traced shepherd’s huts back to 1596, where an early text reads ‘the Shepherd hath his Cabbin going upon a wheel for to move here and there at his pleasure’. Most people think they date from the Victorian era with their cast iron wheels and curved corrugated iron roof. They were a familiar site on the downlands of Southern England, existing as an important part of country peoples’ lives. The most famous shepherd’s hut in history is described by Dorset novelist Thomas Hardy, in the opening chapters of Far from the Madding Crowd, as the home to shepherd Gabriel Oak. Now Even David Cameron has one!
