The Rusted Relic: A Rundown Barn in West Cumbria

The Cumbrian countryside is scattered with reminders of the past. One such reminder is a rundown barn near Pica, in West Cumbria. The barn, which is thought to have been built in the early 19th century, is a beautiful example of traditional agricultural architecture. However, it has fallen into disrepair in recent years, and its future is uncertain.

The barn is made of local stone, and its walls are thick and sturdy. The roof was made of slate, but is now virtually non-existent. The barn's doors (at the side) are made of wood, and they are hanging off their hinges. The interior of the barn is spacious, and it is supported by a number of wooden beams. The floor is made of earth, and it is covered in hay and straw.

The barn is located in a field of rolling hills, and it is surrounded by sheep and cows. The views from the barn are stunning, and it is a great place to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside.

The barn is a popular spot for photographers and walkers, and it is a reminder of the area's rich agricultural heritage. However, the barn is also in danger of collapse, and it is unclear what the future holds for this historic structure.
