Sayer Hut was well worth the walk - dating from the days when huts were built by individuals, not government departments: when locally sourced materials, ingenuity, and rats were all that was required. The walls are hand-sawn timber slabs, the frame beech poles - even the bunks of hand-hewn timber. The only items carried in appear to be the roofing iron, also used to back the large open fireplace, and the random collection of windows which adorn the walls, some of local timber, some carried in, none matching.
