Brief History

This hut was built in 1948 by Walter Oldfield and reputedly burnt in 1982. In fact it still stands.

It gets its name from apparent adultery, the story of which remains a family secret. The double bed remains in the hut to this day.

The hut used to contain many original items of furniture and implements, some of which exist today. These were protected by listing the incorrect position in many reports!

Construction

The hut is made of vertical slabs of timber, with an iron roof.
