We have loved our #30DaysWild month, and the challenge of completing a Random Act of Wildness every day. The kids and I have learned loads, had lots of fun, and really enjoyed connecting with nature each, and every day. But the real reason I get out every day, come rain or shine, is to walk our lovely black Labrador, Sophie.
I say lovely, what I really mean is over-excitable, waggy, drooling and very smelly due to her fondness of fox poo and stagnant water (any water in fact). She is my constant companion, and together we get out and explore our wonderful countryside, and there is so much to be found!
Hidden in a little copse on the edge of a hay field, we discovered this ancient shed. It’s past use as some sort of field shelter is plain to see, with it’s corrugated roof, but I suspect it’s history may go way beyond that.
To me, the build appears medieval in origin – it is in a timber frame, longhouse design.
With an ancient stone floor.
I would love to know the history of this building, but haven’t been able to find any reference to it so far.
Dogs are wonderful companions, and great for getting you out and about and keeping you active. Not everyone can commit the time needed to keep a dog, but why not join a friend, and take their dog for a walk as one of your Random Acts of Wildness during #30DaysWild.
