Preferably one that collapses and could fit in a trailer..

South of England would be preferable..

we have one of those plastic ones that go in the garden, you are welcome to it for free, little bit tatty, not too bad, comes into pieces but they are largish. Also we are in Derby - too far?

not this one, but this kind of thing:

I have a homemade wooden one my daughter has outgrown but I'm in scotland and it doesn't fold down.

It was easy to build - I built a timber frame, used OSB for the roof and floor and with cheap tongue and groove for the walls. Tiled with singles and and painted.

You should try it, it very satisfing when it is complete, and cheaper and nicer than the "sheds" from B&Q. ... or if you have a trailer and a lot of time you can have mine for £80.

it really isn't hard, I hardly measured anything, it's all based on the T&G wood sizes.

I could send you some sort of instructions if you want
