Coel's shed

Last updated on 06-Feb-19

Rudy Coel's shed was a storage and work shed for his building industry in the first half of the twentieth century. It was located behind the Heritage and Cultural Centres in Cowes (the old Cowes Primary School site) but was in the way of the new transit hub and car park, so had to be moved. After many meetings and much discussion, the shed was accepted by the neighbouring Phillip Island Community and Learning Centre and has been moved to the back of their block adjacent to the community garden. It is now on stumps and will have repair work done shortly.
