Here is another curiosity to discover in London streets. Today there are only 13 of theme which exist and all are Grade 2 listed constructions. This one showed in our photos is located in Kensington Park Road in Notting Hill.

They are built after the Cabmen’s Shelter Fund founded in 1875 around the city to provide a shelter to cabmen for being protected from the weather. A place where also they can have a hot meal, read newspapers and books while drinking their tea and coffee. They were providing these services with a very low fee and they were used only by cabmen.

These little green sheds are part of London’s history and also one of the little treats of London for you to discover.
