Tiny Beach Huts in England

When I have time I’m going through my photos in Europe and will post them occasionally, not in any special order. Just shots that catch my eye. This is a little colony of LITTLE huts on the sea next to an old fishing village on the southeast coast of England. People rent the land and build 10 ‘x 10’ huts (none larger allowed) for day-trips to the beach. Barbecue, picnics, swimming, sailing. There are maybe 100 in this group, each unique. A way for non-millionaire families to have a seaside house. We spent two nights in one of these, it was great, sound of the sea, rain on the roof, eating and sleeping in a 100 sq. ft. house. How perfect, since I was going back home to do our next major building book on tiny houses (working on it now).
