I came here a couple times in November 2020, saw this on the second time. If you know where the wheel for this farm equipment is please email pleasereturnmywheel@gmail.com! I'm not affiliated with whoever wrote this (I'm assuming Pickering Museum) but it would be cool if things weren't vandalised.

The ground on the other side of this wall (north side) is approximately a metre taller than the ground on the south side, pictured. Thought it was pretty cool.

We crossed two of these bridges, it's literally five logs tied together with a strap. Relatively stable, the heaviest of us weighs 160 lbs, but I might be careful if things are wet and banks aren't stable. Even if something goes wrong, though, it's a short drop into a shallow slow moving creek.

Abandoned farm equipment (missing a wheel!)

Abandoned farm equipment to the northeast of the wall and barn, a little off the path. Watch for ticks.
