Grain store

NOTE: IN COMMON WITH MOST PHOTOGRAPHED OBJECTS ON THESE WEB PAGES, THIS STRUCTURE LIES ON PRIVATE LAND AND NO RIGHTS OF ACCESS TO THE SITE OR LOCATION ARE IMPLIED IN THE PUBLICATION OF THESE IMAGES. This is a part of the walls of the old grain store at St Andrews. What is left is the floor and these sections of poured-in-place concrete walling. You can see from the rebate cast into the top outside of the wall, that the building comprised a timber structure above the concrete being most probably timber framing clad with weatherboards. In 1878 these boards will have been plain hand-sawn boards and given that there was Totara milled nearby, probably Totara. As Totara is a durable timber, the fact that no wood exists points to it having been re-utilised when the grain store had ceased to be used.
