Derelict gin-gang at rear of Nesbitt Hill Head
A gin gang is a farm building built around central machinery, the gin, which allows the walking of a horse or pony to turn wheels by being attached through a harness. The buildings are usually circular or angled and possess sharply pitched roofs to allow the horse and it's guider to stay dry. The gin being turned is underneath the point of the roof - the rotating of the horse being turned into a horizontally turning shaft, providing a source of power that could be used elsewhere on the farm.
