I think Ive found my new enclosure.

Imagine the size of the oven you could fit in this old mine ruin building? :eek: :D
Spotted this yesterday when we were out for a drive.

It also looks like you would have to transport the hoards of wood some distance as there seems pretty little around it as is the case with many old mine sites.
It is a lovelly example of craftsmanship from olden times though.

Just consider the number of bricks in that building, 2 or 3 brick lengths thick walls and all solid. Imagine how they would source them and carry them by bullock wagon how far, to the site.
Look at today's buildings in similar situations, steel frame and sheets of colorbond if lucky. Absolutely no character at all!
Bring back the old days
