Situated in a field in the middle of nowhere sits this amazing hidden gem.​


History is scarce online, credit to Clebby and others for managing to find this - http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=49389.

Originally an eccentric home built in the 1980s by Colin Stokes to house sheep, it now lies unused.

It's hard to emphasize scale though these photos, but this is about 2 stories high.

Despite its huge size, it is very well hidden (google can't help you here!) and I needed help to find it (big thanks to tommo!). This at least means that it is in surprisingly good condition with just a few birds inhabiting it.
