The list of composers who wrote in their sheds is a sizeable one and includes Mahler, Grieg, Mozart and Haydn. Among their number is Benjamin Britten whose composing shed at his home in Horham, Suffolk, is a Grade II listed building. It is made of brick with a pantile roof and one window (with attractive rural views) and was built in the 1970s: inside, he wrote Death in Venice, Phaedra and his Third String Quartet. Interestingly, the listing is based on historic rather than architectural importance. --------------------------------------------------------------- Create energy, create space, go solar with energyspace solar garden buildings.
