    Another backdated one that's been done plenty of times here.

    Designed and built by stained glass artist Colin Stokes, (allegedly) as a haybarn in the 1980-90's.. Evolving over eleven years, this started life as a single storey shed. Built by hand, with no plans, using dry stone walling techniques and stones gathered from the property. Sold in 2000 due to a quarry opening nearby, this is now empty and used for some storage.
