The use of abandoned boats as sheds is an East Coast of England tradition. These upturned boatsheds are found at the harbour on Lindisfarne, Northumberland, are still used by local fishermen.
The boat sheds at the castle first appeared when Edwin Lutyens restored Lindisfarne castle for Edward Hudson at the turn of the last century.
The Spanish architect Enric Miralles used Lutyens’ upturned herring busses as an inspiration for his design of the Scottish Parliament Building in Edinburgh.

Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.
