Lost in the Woods

I didn’t get lost on my walk this week but I did come across this old shed that had the distinct appearance of being abandoned and lost in the woods. On closer inspection, it appeared that it may still be in use – I couldn’t say for sure, but I did like the aged appearance of it. Covered in moss, spider webs and snow the rusty corrugated iron sheets seemed well camouflaged in the winter woodland.

My descending approach to the shed took me through some deeper snow, the sound of which can be heard on my first post for this week. Care had to be taken and you can hear the point in the clip where I stumble. The rough track and the need to clamber over brambles to reach the shed again suggested it may no longer be in use, but who knows – the ways of those working the land will, perhaps, always hold some mystery.

  1. I’ve been enjoying your walk this week quite a lot 🙂
    It’s great to be able to finally see a wintery landscape. I particularly like this shed. It’s ripe with untold stories for the imagination to play with.

    • Thanks Allysse, so glad you like it. The shed was a brilliant find, I was excited to spot it there and indeed you are right, it truly sparks the imagination.

    • I reckon you’re right Wade. Half of it was empty, the other half was stacked with wood and pallets and stuff. I couldn’t work out if it was still used or not.
