The Hobbit House (or 'Colin's Barn'), Chedglow - November 2012

I was driving back from London and had lot's of time to kill so thought I'd take a detour into the countryside. Hidden away deep in Wiltshire is this little gem. It is almost completely unchavved and there is no damage that isn't natural. It looks like the farmer who owns the land is using it for some light storage currently.

It's not everyone's cup of tea, but I found it fascinating, how it lies here just forgotten about.

Some very brief history:
Briefly, it was built between 1989 and 1999 by a stained glass artist called Colin Stokes, on land he owned near his house in Chedglow, Wiltshire. He built it for his sheep. The council were not best pleased that neither Stokes nor his flock had been through the due planning process, and the stress of the bureaucracy may have contributed to him moving to Scotland. The ‘barn’ remains quietly dilapidating in a field.
Cheers to pseudo for the info, and indeed clebby for finding it in the first place!
