Garon Park Shed

Your Local Community Shed

If you are interested in learning more about woodworking, have skills to share, are looking for the perfect work space to build your latest project or want somewhere to visit to share time and interests then Garon Park Shed is the place to be.

Alongside our well equipped workshop, we have a wood turning lathe and are always interested to hear from prospective members about what they are interested in doing. Alternatively if you would just like somewhere to come and chat and share experiences, then there is, of course, always tea and coffee available.

We are open every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday morning between 09:30 and 14:00, so come along to see us for a coffee and a chat, and if you like what we do please join us to build a sharing community around our shed.

We also plan and run regular skills-sharing sessions where members can learn another skill or just see a different way to do a task. These are available to shed members only and, as space is limited must be prebooked. 

Our Facilities

Garon Park Shed is equipped with full dust extraction facilities, planing and thicknessing machine, band-saw, table saw, pillar drill, router table and numerous powered and hand tools.

As well as the essential tea and coffee facilities we have full access to toilet facilities adjacent to our shed.


At Garon Park Shed we believe that in today's increasingly busy and hectic society people of a certain age can feel left behind and so become isolated.  

Our Shed creates a stress-free, non-judgemental space for people to visit and interact with similar like-minded people providing a welcoming and growing community in a safe environment.


Come and share experiences at Garon Park Shed, the perfect place for new skills to rub off on you. We believe our shed to be a great place to share not only your own skills but maybe learn new ones and share in life's ups and downs! Join our energetic and vibrant community and find a new way to spend the day!
