Secluded amongst trees in the grounds of George Bernard Shaw’s Hertfordshire residence is a small hut where Shaw found the tranquillity he needed to write. It was built on a circular steel track so it could revolve to follow the sun throughout the day. In this small space, surrounded by this peaceful pale green, Shaw created plots and characters that would bring him a Nobel Prize in 1925 and an OSCAR in 1938. Shaw fondly dubbed the hut ‘London’, so that unwanted visitors could be told he was away ‘visiting the capital’.
