Side wall, curved like a boat's hull, but not watertight.
Nor is the roof.
Lean-to on the end. Leaning.
Detail of one wall.
In spite of all that twisting and crumbling, Laurie says the building is sturdy enough. I don't quite believe him, but he has evidence:
I still wouldn't get too close; I was afraid even to sneeze.
It seems to have been used as a dairy barn:
Surge. 1983 - 1999 logo.
This is on the door of the shed at the rear, beside the old tank. (see top photo) (Would that be for milk?) Laurie tells me that Surge is the name of the milker they were using.*
In a dirty window in the shed, a glimpse of machinery, and a reflection of the farm across the road.
Fans, motor, tanks and stuff. With blackberry runners, both Himalayan and cutleaf or evergreen.
Through another window, a back door and a pile of assorted parts, vintage and modern.
And there was an unexpected bonus; I almost stepped on a patch of large cup mushrooms.
It came with a 1981 penny for size comparison. I brought that home with me. Waste not, want not..
*Here are some of the Surge advertising cartoons. Cute! And a smiling milkmaid on a postcard (scroll down).
