This very small sheep dip (both narrow and short)is in the Devil's Bridge area of Ardgowan and may have been erected in the late 1800s as part of the Ardgowan Estate pastoral run. It is partly carved from native rock (limestone) and partly made from poured mass concrete - and hard to photograph to show that! Possibly a nice survivor of the very early days of sheep farming in North Otago
