Horse Shelter in field at Chipnall, near Cheswardine
Horse Shelter in field at Chipnall, near Cheswardine, taken 9 years ago
Recent information now indicates that this building was probably NOT a horse gin, in which a horse walked round and round transferring power by mechanical means.
It is considerably more likely that this structure was erected as a shelter for horses and other livestock.
The central structure of the building which supports the roof is insubstantial and unlikely ever to have been strong enough to support a horse gin.
