Alternative Icon

The curated beach huts of the English seaside – Felixstowe for the Continent, Frinton for the incontinent – are iconic. They hark back to childhoods perhaps more imagined than real. We see them as timeless, Everyman’s refuge, although their kitsch decor changes with the generations and their purchase prices now exceed the pocket of most.

As the beach huts are secured for the oncoming winter, I offer an alternative icon to the mini-palaces of Southwold – the lock-ups of Pirton.
