For most of us a shed is a fairly tatty building at the bottom of the garden where we keep tools and junk. But that's certainly not the case for one shed owner on Merseyside.
This is the Owl House by Tracy Lewis from Hightown, Sefton. And her rather spectacular design has won her the Eco Category in the 2015 annual Shed of the Year competition... Resembling an owl due to the unique curved wooden window frames, its made entirely from cob, recycled plywood and collected recycled glass bottles and even has a grass roof. Used for relaxing in, it contains a bed and comfy chairs and overlooks the dunes at Hightown.

A rather unusual (and rather large) piece of artwork is to go on display on Merseyside. It will stand three metres high in an 11 metre-long Viking boat, Its called Edwards Elephant and its going to a focal point of Kirkby town centre. To see more click here.
The artwork celebrates Kirkby’s history and the poetry of Edward Lear. Residents wanted the boat to represent Kirkby’s past as a Viking settlement, while the elephant – known for its memory – was important to them in remembering the town’s history and how it was created.
I wanted Edward’s Elephant to reflect the warmth and humour that I have encountered in Kirkby. I hope that people will see it as a friendly and fun presence in the town
