The Huts

1984

About this memory

Filmed in 1984, The Huts was one of the first documentaries that Channel 4 made. The lack of facilities in Wester Hailes led to the community overseeing the construction of 7 huts. These community bases provided places where people could meet, groups could be run and services delivered. The film shows how the community huts impacted on the lives of local individuals and groups, creating change and improving the life of the wider community. This photo is taken from a series of negatives that were taken during the making of the film.
