Saffron Walden Community Shed Project


                                                                              Can you help us!! 

Unfortunately we are having to move out of our lovely barn that we use at St Marks College Audley End and we are looking for new premises.  We are very flexible as to what we will consider so if you know of anywhere with covered space of 150m2 or larger that we could convert into a workshop we would love to hear from you.    Contact Us.



Located in the modern River Barn at St Marks College 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 and with an ageing population many older people, particularly men, are finding that that they are isolated and without social contact.  The shed movement, which originally started in Australia but has now over 500 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 Mike at:

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?
