A cow shed to die for. Corseyard Farm

Some ten years ago I was intrigued by a building complex near the little village of Carrick on the Solway .The buildings looked like an Abbey and were abandoned. . Checking on the OS map nothing was marked apart from a farm. A couple of years ago I still found the buildings of interest but they were in greater state of neglect. This year with holes in the roof I stopped to take some photos and read a planning application on the gate they are to be turned into holiday homes.(so it looks as if the building will have a new life).In the age of the internet I was able to answer what these buildings were. Corseyard Farm built around 1911 as a Model Farm consisting of a large milking parlour stables cart sheds and barn with a water tower. The style is predominantly Gothic revival including prominent buttresses. .In was built for a wealthy merchant James Brown.cow shedANDY0461
