This gave me the creeps; at first sight it looked like someone hanging.
Gortin, Northern Ireland
Further up the road was another abandoned farmhouse. This calendar from 1989 was inside.
It was definitely a bit spooky. As I was poking about I heard a noise outside and looking out the door saw, to my horror, the farmer approaching on his tractor. I had to hide while he passed, then I skedaddled down the road as fast as I could.
There was nothing in the drawers; I looked.
Some colourful decay.
Inside another ruined farmhouse. This one had some interesting things inside, such as this old stove
There were beautiful flowers growing wild everywhere.
The one day it was actually a bit overcast.
Roses growing wild in a hedge.
Some expectant-looking calves in a field. They were left disappointed.
The slightly underwhelming Bronze Age stone circles and alignments at Beaghmore.
Inside the church.
A lovely little church in the middle of nowhere.
The view from Barnes Gap.
This man had found a piece of human-shaped bog oak and customised it, including a fetching pair of boots.
A ritual procession.
The rolling hills made it look like Yorkshire.
The beautiful scenery near Barnes Gap.
A narrow space for the tractor, just off the main street in Gortin.
The scenery from this road was just beautiful, with flowers growing wild in the hedge.
Discussing methods of sheep farming in the Sperrins.
An umbrella malfunction.
Still solid in some parts, very much not in others
The light through the trees around the house was beautiful.
My favourite ruined old house just outside Gortin, visited many times over the years and still standing, just about.
