Shed Of The Year 2016: See The Finalists On The Wacky Design Shortlist

The Euros may only be a couple of weeks ago but the real contest this year is the battle to be crowned Shed of the Year.

A re-creation of the Millennium Falcon, a restored nuclear bunker and a converted camper van are among the wacky designs shortlisted from the record-breaking 2,825 entries this year.

While most people are happy if they can escape for the odd hour or two among pot plants and rusty old saws, more committed enthusiasts have lovingly put time and patience into creating some of the most eye-catching sheds in the UK - and here are just some hoping to be crowned 2016’s champion.
