These are fisherman's huts in Southwold harbour on the east Coast of England, I've been there many times along with many other artist's over the years. I love the tatty bitumen covered huts all different shapes and sizes, some with quirky names displayed above their doors. Most are still used by the fishermen and one or two are used to sell fresh fish. There is a larger one further along towards the boat bulders yard - it's a cafe and from it's slightly elevated position you can enjoy a mug of coffee and a bacon sandwich and watch people messing about in boats... I love it!
