The Milkman's View


A couple of weekends ago I went for an adventure around Wellington and discovered this old cowshed on top of Mt Crawford. 



It was quite the surprising discovery as Crawford is one of the major hills/mountains surrounding the city and its hard to imagine cattle having grazed in the area or workers being able to focus with that view.


Having seen similar buildings on our farm I would guess that are from around the mid 1900's though there doesn't seem to be any information about the farm. When I was up there it appeared that it was now used to graze a horse.

  5. I agree about the view, but maybe you can get used to anything...
    The building itself looks to be in pretty good shape, considering how old it is...
