    Default Leicestershire Farm, March 2019


    I forgot about this one from March. This is an abandoned farm in Leicestershire and by the looks of it, it's been vacant for over a decade; I've not got any history on the place sorry.

    The main house is on full lock-down, after what looks like a full scumbag invasion, so a few of my better outside and farm building shots.

    4. Not the best quality, but this is one of several old-style of animal stables


    5. Another type


    6. Would have driven belt machinery in the past (possibly air powered)


    7. I liked the mix of decay going on here


    8. Inside the workshop


    9. Upstairs, the millstone is attached to the below machinery


    10.

    Image 6 looks rather like the vacuum pump from a milking machine installation.

    I think it's of that ilk, but the drum was a for a belt of some variety; quite an old design?

    Yes a vacuum pump for a milking machine. Usually an electric motor turns them via 'V' belts.
    Full of meaty goodness.
