Wheel House, Home Farm, Roxby
Wheel House, Home Farm, Roxby
From the early days of farm mechanisation, the building housed a wheel driven around by a horse or two to provide power for threshing or grinding.
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.
