Tarka the Otter's success in winning the Hawthornden Prize provided Henry Williamson with enough money (£100) to buy his own writing hut in 1928 at Ox's Cross in Devon, close to his family house at Georgeham. The hut - known as The Field - is now a museum and contains a selection of her personal effects, clothes and indeed his writing desk. The hut provides a major focus for the annual autumn meeting of the Henry Williamson Society as it did for Williamson himself who wrote his A Chronicle of Ancient Sunlight series of novels inside it. Pictured below outside Williamson's hut are schoolchildren from Georgeham Primary School in Devon on a field trip. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Friday posts are sponsored by Extraspace, the flat-packed, man-portable expandable garden building experts.
