This traditional shed with built-in log store is one of our Blickling Sheds and it has been installed for a customer based in Poynton, Cheshire. The Blickling
is from our range of sheds and summerhouses in collaboration with the National Trust, with a contribution from every building sold from this range going to the National Trust to help them conserve the special places they look after. This building was hand-made to order inside the factory at our HQ in Narford, Norfolk before being delivered and installed at our customer’s address by our expert installations team.
The Blickling Shed comes in four different sizes: 1.8 x 3.0m, 2.4 x 3.0m, 2.4 x 3.6m and 1.8 x 3.6m, which is the size that this customer has opted for. It’s named after the Blickling Estate in North Norfolk and its design is inspired by the outbuilding located within the estate. Like all our garden buildings, it has been crafted from FSC® certified timber, which is machined from Scandinavian Redwood grown close to the Arctic Circle in Northern Sweden.
Our Blickling Sheds have classic design features such as an apex roof covered in black corrugated sheeting, cast iron black door furniture with a mortice lock and a Georgian-style window set. They are also traditionally cladded using vertically sawn timber boards, which add to the overall rustic look of the building. Our Blickling is also designed with an additional feature that is different to all the other National Trust buildings in our range, which is a built-in log store that measures 900mm wide.
From the first point of contact to installation the service received was fantastic. We are delighted with our National Trust Blickling Shed. A special mention for the two lovely and highly professional fitters who erected the shed with no fuss - they were great and impressively adhered to all COVID restrictions. If only this standard of service were more commonplace! Many thanks.

When it comes to decorating the exterior of our National Trust Buildings, you will have a choice of six colours from the National Trust Paint Palette, all of which have been inspired by the colours of nature. Our customer has chosen the shade Disraeli Green, a light green toned colour which will blend in with our customer’s garden beautifully.
