I don't it was according to old farmer used as an entrance when house was 2 cottages

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I dont
Thanks.

In that case you do not have any rights. This is because you do not own the land.

What the new owner can do is ask you to leave the land.

If you refuse then he can seek a possession order of the land that has the shed.

If this happens you are likely to be liable for any legal costs.

But I am sorry to say without any form of lease or agreement you have no right to occupy the land.

I am sorry that this is not the answer you are looking for but based on what you have said, this is the legal position.
