Snibston Discovery Park 8/10

My Camera Club had the run of the outside area at Snibston Discovery Park, Coalville, particularly the old coalmine area, closed in 1983, having been opened in 1832, for a shoot one evening recently.

This old barn is on site at Snibston and has been brought in brick by brick and re-erected to one side of the site.  I am not sure where it came from but it is, apparently, very old.

 

Take a note of the first window on the side of the building, you will see it again on Friday but in a slightly different fashion.

Lovely colours, Brian, and detail, as usual (you been at the Topaz again? ). What a great shame they had to spoil the old world charm and put on that hideous H&S notice, though. Looks like no-one has been in for some time.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, full marks for guessing Topaz. I should have cloned out the H.& S.sign really.

Lovely example of new old-stuff, Brian...whatever were they thinking...
Brian Walbey: At least it has survived Ray, many such have been knocked down sadly.
pain staking work to recreate it but looks good
Brian Walbey: It is quite a common occurance nowadays Deerk for old buildings to be moved like this one to museums etc.

Well it's been miraculously saved then Brian: a lot of effort must have gone into its conservation
Brian Walbey: All there efforts with this building have been greatly rewarded Chris.
Funny how common the name Moody is Brian. I keep coming across it.
Brian Walbey: Your name isn't Ron by any chance Chad.
Nice colours. Old brick always looks warmer than new brick, even when the colours are the same.
Brian Walbey: I suspect my Topaz adjustment has brought out the colours quite a bit Sheila but they are nice colour bricks in reality.
Lovely old workshop, even the sign and D. C. Moody seems just right somehow.
Brian Walbey: It all comes together quite nicely John, how fortunate it hasn't just been knocked down.
Wonderful old brick, don't you just love it?
Brian Walbey: It is a fine old building Bill.
They have done a great job at rebuilding, it has lovely character with the red brick. Look forward to Friday smile
Brian Walbey: A bit of a twiddle on Friday Linda, in addition to the Topaz adjustment.
Elfin Safety, he gets everywhere.
Full of character and interest this one Brian, well spotted and taken.
Brian Walbey: Thanks George. I should have cloned out the sign to be honest.
Lovely colours, Brian - looks as though it could fall down any minute now!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom, I think it has been rebuilt fairly sturdily.

There are a few similar building like these along the road from us Brian. Left over from the Beecham days. Love the colours here well composed.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Scotia.
It looks fairly substantial Brian..Not going to waste I hope.
Brian Walbey: I think it has some old plant and equipment stored inside Ron.
I love everything about it!
