            Saffron Walden Community Shed 



















Located in the Old Granary, Home Farm, Audley End, the Saffron Walden Community Shed is a place to gather, make and mend things, do shed type projects together, drink tea, eat cake and relax.

Significant research has shown that loneliness is a growing problem in our modern society.  Many older people, and those who are unemployed or unable to work due to illness, are finding that that they are isolated and without social contact.  The shed movement, which originally started in Australia but has now over 1000 sheds in the UK, aims to give people (men and women) who enjoy doing practical work, a place to meet together, make friends and socialise.

If you would be interested in joining us or just want to find out more about what we do email

We would be happy to show you around our shed and explain what we are doing and how you might be able to join in.  No obligation, just a friendly chat and maybe some cake.







So what are sheds all about?
