But now health experts say there is real benefit in letting men escape to their simple sanctuaries, that could even help them live longer.

As a result a network of communal ‘men’s sheds’ that provide a place for them to meet and be – or rather do – is springing up across the English-speaking world.

Men are getting together in them to bang nails, weld metal, shape wood, tinker with engines and drink tea. Talking is optional.

Born in the sweaty heartlands of Australia, the idea has been to create somewhere men might be more willing to listen to a few home truths about their own health than the stifling confines of a GP’s surgery.

Now they are catching on here, with some 20 already up and running across the UK, from the Lake District to south London.
