Old school milking shed
.

This old cattle milking structure was found on a farm that was abandoned about 10 years ago, but it is likely to have fallen out of use some time before that due to the introduction of mechanised milking machinery. The wood has minimal processing, mainly just stripped of bark and cut where needed; the walls are lined with rusting tin. The feeding troughs still have some straw remaining in them. Some of the structure is missing - an entire portion has been neatly sawn off and removed. The electric light fittings have also disappeared.
