Description
It looked like just a barn but it screamed for a camera anyway, so up the very long driveway I went. As i got closer it really looked like a church. After taking a few pictures I saw a full size Chevy truck blow past my truck and spotter and flew down the driveway at mach 2 towards , ah ya, me. Just great ,it was at this point, I was wondering how my tripod would work as a Bat'leth as my only defence and had no where to run. Well luckily, he was cool [but has had probs. in the past] and filled me in on the place. It is an old school but was never in service here.[most schools are very close to the road]. This school was moved by his grandfather and father after it was decommissioned[a very long time ago] from Gads Hill area, as is the direction the farmer pointed. The school was originally located on their property, as well, near Gads Hill but they wanted it here.This farmer[owner] lives across the road and a good idea to check in with him first, rather then meet him the way i did. The large red square behind is probably for aircraft as the Stratford airport is south east of here. This wooden school is very rare and thus FM. A recent Google Earth and street view show it is farmed over.
