A tumbledown shack at that!

Great aspect and wonderful potential as an estate agent would say!

Danger! Keep Out! So the signs warn.
Only wind and rain blow through the old barn.
No human foot, no tramp malingering,
And the arthritic creek of the tin roof swinging
Any groaning in the winter gust.
Collapsing! Decaying! Turning to dust.

Poet - What a beautiful picture you paint with your poetry, very descriptive and subsequently quite moving. Thank you.

We have five pet sheep, so my eye was drawn to the ewe grazing on the right of the photo. Could the shed be described as ‘ramshackle’ ?

Get Planning Permission, knock it down, build "Luxury Apartments" sell them for silly amounts of money and retire to warmer climes. Loverleee Jubberleee!.

Some might say 'another building bites the dust' surely something could have been done to 'preserve' it! Cuprinol or Creosote! ; 0)))
(tongue in cheek)!

I like ramshackle Pat, particularly with the idea of the sheep clattering about in the ruin.

rusty ramshackle sheep shambled shed

Diolch o galon for your kind words.

Poet, nice use of alliteration! Your use of language is pictorial and enhances photo of the day. Impressed by your Welsh, which is my first language.

Only marginally better than my shed

Needs paint !

A neglected barn that is what it is.
No amount of TLC will bring it back to life.
