White Spot

This looks like a utilitarian shed until you notice the two chimneys on the tin roof. It was once a small dwelling known as Half Spot, which stood above part of the coastline known as Under Spots. Between the great wars Laugharne's last boat-builder, Sam Evans, lived here. His workshop stood at the top of the steps opposite, an area known as First Spot.

The last occupants of the cottage were Sam's sisters. One, Elizabeth 'Spot', earned her crust carrying cans of water to other houses in the area. In the 1940s the workshop opposite White Spot was demolished, and the area landscaped. Half Spot became a garage, seemed to change its name to White Spot, before its last most recent incarnation as the gardener's shed for Cliff Cottage.

Good job no-one had a dog called Spot.
