After a lovely drive in the country to the sound of shepy's 'i'm sure its round here somewhere' mantra, we finally came across this place, and it was well worth the battering of the car's suspension on all those windy counrty roads, and the horrible weather!!

A brief history of the place, was built as a tb hospice but, a cure for TB came along fairly soon after it was built........ and so the story goes it was never actually used.

It has been commendeered by a local farmer (Farmer charvered in the wise words of she...) as a place for storage for his boats and some old farm stuff that looks like something straight out of an old western!!

So, on with the pics!

this place is soooo nestled in its surrondings, you really need to know its there to find it..... once you get off the access road, there is no clue that its there!

And so, with the sound of some local kiddies playing, somewhere, we bid a retreat.
