5 things to know about a tin hut

1. It rusts so needs regular painting

2. In high winds and when bombs drop the roof rises and the builder needs to hammer the bolts back in

3. A company called Boulton and Paul made it  flat-packed  for ease of transport

4. There’s more than one in Woodhall Spa but one owner was embarrassed and put a brick coating round his years ago

5. Ours has been on the site since 1887 and is now a museum.

    Can you still buy flat-packed tin homes? Sounds like a great idea to me!

About this Sponsor

Woodhall Spa Cottage Museum is an accredited independent museum in the heart of Lincolnshire. It is run entirely by volunteers and is housed in a rare Boulton and Paul prefabricated corrugated iron bungalow. The fascinating displays tell the story of a unique spa village, its exclusive Edwardian clientele and its 20th century military connections. Information is also provided on older features in the area such as the abbeys at Kirkstead and Stixwould and the Tower-on-the -Moor, a 15th century hunting lodge.
