Who hasn't thought about running away from it all at some time or other? Barry and Jimmy hadn't - until now. Friends since school days in a small town, they find themselves slipping inexorably and almost unconsciously into middle age.

Shedtown is a dream born out of quiet desperation. Throughout the series the wooden icon of escape and isolation 'the shed' becomes a symbol of possibility and change, a new community by the sea where Barry and Jimmy can circumnavigate the mundane, once and for all.

In Series 2, the wooden icon of escape and isolation - the shed - continues to be a symbol of possibility and change. Our Sheddists arrived and survived - and, now waking from a beach-baked slumber, the familiar residents find faces old and new on the sand.

Series 3 starts as The Shedists have fallen off the edge, abandoned ship; they're clinging to driftwood and floating out to sea.
