Hexagonal Wheel Shed, Botton Farm
Hexagonal Wheel Shed, Botton Farm
Not uncommon on the North York Moors but it's rare to find one that hasn't been converted. This barn would have originally housed a horse wheel where one or more horses would have turned a wheel to provide power for agricultural machinery.
Horse Gin House
Horse gin houses date from the late 18th or early 19th century and housed a wheel or gin which was turned by a horse walking around in a circle. A belt from the wheel would have been fed into the adjacent barn to provide power for machinery such as a threshing machine.
