Last week we visited some of the older, rundown barns in our area - let's take a tour of some of the nicer ones.
Neat and tidy - and a pretty red tractor
The house looks like a barn too - though it was purpose built as a house, not converted from a barn.
The ivy covered fence sets off an older barn, still in use.
Not quite as new, or well kept
Red barns always cheer up the countryside.
This is a very common shape for barns in our area - in the foreground is a nice field of hay, about ready to be harvested.
And an identically shaped barn - with a newly planted field in the foreground. Very few differences in the two barns - one has a weathervane, the other doesn't. One is in open fields, the other up against a mountain, one has a red tree on the left, the other has a green tree.
And our last one has fallen all to pieces. We've watched over the years as it slowly collapsed to the ground.
