Christmas Greetings 2015

Happy Christmas! 

This time last year I posted a photo of the NT Sutton Hoo Shepherd's Hut.

I have seen a couple more of these mobile shelters this year,
and thought I might share them with you.

David Morris has written a delightful book on the subject
entitled Shepherds' Huts and Living Vans.

I hope I may encounter some more in 2016!

'While shepherds watched
Their flocks by night
All seated on the ground
The angel of the Lord came down
And glory shone around ...

Words: Nahum Tate

I wish you and your family the best over this Christmas season. I like seeing the huts and the different devices they used to help them move them.
