Britt's Barn

Thursday afternoon, as the light was being lost to those on the other side of the planet and a fine rain began falling through the sodium glare of the nearby street lights, I was to be found in a farm unloading a 15th century barn from off the back of a flatbed truck.

What, you may well ask, is a fifteenth century barn doing on the back of a flatbed truck? Well, Britt bought the barn to save it from destruction. But the barn was in Wales and she had to move it from under the teeth of the demolition machines. So she moved it back here, in two loads, on the back of a flatbed truck and is storing it in a 20th century barn.

Itís all oak, several tons of oak, all labelled according to how it was. Itíll be great to see it re-built, mind you itís then you find that the King Post fell off on the A5.
