This Sunday I think we'd have a look at some barns just for fun.


Older but still in use

Newer barn that reflects the changes in farming

I would assume that there are many cows housed in this long barn

You can still see the original which is dwarfed by the additions

Still standing but way past it's prime

A huge barn in great shape but from an era gone by

Sadly it won't survive without some major attention and soon

A barn that finally gave in to the weather and probably a winter's heavy snows

Designed for hay storage above but now hay production has changed and wrapped round bales are the norm
