To the left hand side of the original outbuilding is an added garage which has been neglected and in need of some tender loving care albeit extensive. This is the building that we intend to put a polycarbonate roof on and use as an indoor garden.
The doors are intact and are just laying on the ground. We have since been down and lifted them up ready to reinstall and paint.
To the right hand side is a small store.
The paint on the door is peeling and there is no roof at all, but the wood is in good condition and can be repainted. A lot of work and not for the faint hearted but it will all be worth it in the end.
The inside of the main building is a joy to behold with wonderful wooden beams and the original stonework. It will take some clearing as the previous owners left a lot of paraphernalia which we need to sort out. A neighbour is going to help us with the rubbish.
In the small store we found 10 large tyres which we intend to repurpose and make into planters.
Are you wearing comfortable shoes?
The ground near the fence is soggy so definitely worth looking where you are going. I didn't focusing on the view and ended up with very wet feet indeed.
Once you get over the small rise, it becomes a feast for the eyes beauty in which ever direction you look. It was breath taking, everything I thought it would be and more. The photos do not do it justice.
Now the trek back but there will be tea and cakes as a reward, there is some banana bread and scones just out of the oven. Hope you enjoyed the walk?
See you soon.
