The Japanese Tea House from Cold Norton in Chelmsford has been entered into this year’s annual ‘Shed of The Year’ competition sponsored by CuprinolEntries in this UK contest are being accepted until April 7. This article in the Daily Mail highlights about 15 of the sheds, located in areas from Cheshire to Northamptonshire and Surrey to Nottinghamshire. In the one shown here, Derek Verlander has spent 30 years transforming his garden in Essex into an Oriental haven.

There is a tea house with a collection of Samurai swords, sake jars, lanterns and other Japanese ornaments, Japanese-style bridge, a 40′ waterfall, bonsai trees and Buddha statues.

Mr. Verlander has never been to Japan.
