Two Shrine's Shepherd's Huts had survived from the mid 1930’s. Fr Bruno Scott James, the first Priest Custodian of the Slipper Chapel, refers to them in his autobiography, “Asking for Trouble” and speaks of his mission in Walsingham:
“… from this developed my plan of giving retreats to men, so that before long there were young men of every kind and class coming to Walsingham to learn how to be still and know God. Since my house (Slipper Chapel Cottage) had only one spare room, I built for them at the end of my garden, small one roomed houses or huts of cedar wood. With their high-pitched shingle roofs they looked not unlike tiny alpine cottages. Within there was a bunk, a bookshelf, a table and a chair”.
