Keen observers will have noticed the new book to the right of my posts, and will also probably remember that for the last year I have made numerous references to a project I once called Classic Constructs. Patently that isn't the title now, but Built for Britain is still a mix of the very large- the cantilevered Forth Bridge, and the very small- a Fenland pill box. And just for good measure spreads on corrugated iron (of course) and rows of beach huts. Including these at Wells-next-the-Sea on the North Norfolk coast, built on stilts to give them a chance on the ever-shifting foreshore and a place underneath to hide from mummy and daddy. You too can live the dream, because if you go to the Built for Britain website you'll be able to enter a competition to spend a glorious weekend for you and your pal of choice at The Crown Hotel in Wells. Plus you'll get £100 of spendo which means you could go and get something made out of grey serge in Trouser Town. Good luck!
