The Wonderful Barns get a cleanup

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This unusual corkscrew shaped building was built in 1743 at a time of famine, it was used to store grain. A stone staircase winds around the outside leading to the top. Inside each floor has a hole in the centre allowing the grain to be passed through. Two smaller structures of a similar design, used as dovecotes stand behind the main barn structure, one of which can be seen in this photo.
