    Default Old Farm Buildings, Knipton, Leicestershire, June 2019


    1. The History
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, for such a small place, can find absolutely no history for these farm buildings. This range of farm buildings must have belonged to one of the farms in the vicinity of the small but picturesque village of Knipton, Leicestershire. However, managed to find no details at all.

    2. The Explore
    If you can really call it that. Known about this place by the side of the road coming into Knipton from Belvoir for some while. Never bothered checking it out as either the weather was poor or I was in a hurry. With twenty or so minutes to spare the this time thought Id pull up, hope over the gate and have a shufty. Had very little expectations let alone any intention doing a report. However, it turned out to be a little gem. Only three rooms and an offshoot but really, really photogenic which nature really taking the place back. Great little place.

    I liked the hinges used and the construction methods such as bevelled crosspieces. The barn could be saved, all it needs is a new roof and a tidy out.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
