SE7589 : Odd building

Odd building
Odd building
On the very Northern edge of this square by the Rosedale road stands this forlorn building.
Around the late 60s, someone bought the plot with the intention of building a small house there. The North York Moors Park planners would not allow it, but conceded that they were powerless to stop him building an agricultural storage barn on the land - so this strange looking 'barn' has remained as seen here for more than 30 years now.
It's said that inside it is exactly like a house but there are only bare walls.
No cows or hay bales have been kept there to my knowledge!
