    Default Old Farm Buildings, Malton


    Old Farm Buildings, Malton.

    On the way back from our quarry experience my son and I also decided to explore an old set of farm buildings that I had had my eye on for some time. Entrance was stealthy as itís on the main road, but once we were in there was good set of ramshackle buildings, lots of pigeon poo, and old stables. I think the site is now used as cheap lock upís and the tractor is definitely still in use, but none the less a good quick explore. Had a chance to try out my new Fenix torch, a crimble present from me to me!!

    Old stairs to the room above the stables



    General view of the buildings



    Archway



    Lovely old tractor, still very much in use I guess



    One for you brick fans



    Old signs from the cattle market



    The door at the end was banging in the wind, scared the sh*te out of me at first





    Old farm building window, a tad draughty if you ask me!



    Inside was this old drinking trough, Fenix torch at work!!



    Roof eaves



    Tractor close up



    Wrought iron work dates the buildings to 1871



    Final shot, the main barn buildings, that central tower really is leaning, hence my reluctance to go upstairs!!




    Cheers

    That has to be one of the most delightful farm buildings I've ever seen. Gorgeous brickwork...just love those outside steps and the doorway arch. And a tractor too!
    I would so love to live there! :)

    I can't read and I can't write, but that don't really matter,
    I come from the west country and I can drive a tractor.

    Hi Foxylady, I agree, I think it would make a fantastic house, bit worried about the middle bit leaning though!!

    you got some terrific detail there,especially the roof beams, its good to see an old Dizzy Brown being used,that was one of the first tractors i ever drove, i think the "trough" is likely to be an old scullery sink, they came in various sizes,i sold one a while back that was three and a half feet long
