    Default Cider Press Hall, May 2020


    Cider Press Hall, May 2020

    One that's local (so passes social distancing tests!) and one I've been saving for a while. The farmer rumbled me before I could get more shots of the press, so I had to beat a hasty retreat.

    Not much in the way of history I'm afraid, but it's been abandoned for some time pre-2000s for sure and would have been a lovely house in its day.

    Not bad that, so that last pic is a cider press?
    There was one in a barn near where I stayed in Wales last year, didnt know what it was for but was identical to that!
    What the hell am I doing, I mean really at my age!

    So that's the bit that mashes all the apples up, the press was in the corner; I was literally about to jump through the window when the farmer showed up!

    Yeah think there was both in this barn I went in, was a wooden structure that looked like some stocks at first glance!
