Norway Not so urban (summer 2013)

Recommended Posts

In rural aereas of Norway there are a lot of abandoned farms and derelict farm buildings. A lot. Some farms abandoned completely, more often one or several buildings no longer maintained and falling apart. A vast number of barns, because it's no longer run as a farm, people just live there. And sometimes, in stead of upgrading the old house, people just build a new one, leaving the old to rot. In the aerea where I live I've become used to seing theese derelict buildings. This last year or so I've brought my camera and taken a closer look at some. This is one of them, the oldest one easily seen from the main road, one of six I see from my regular 30 min bus route. It's not very urban, and I'm not sure this would interrest you, but here we go.

Thats cool to be honest you never know what you can come across in some of these places.

Even if trashed there can be the remains of old farming equipment etc which can provide some great shots.

Thats fine my friend and thanks for the share

It's the old cow shed (if that's the correct english word). The holes are for the cows to put their head through to reach the hey in the crib. So, crib on one side, cows stand on the other (pen?), wall between (probably to prevent the cows from messing up their food), with hole in. You can clearly see the cows was smaller not all that many years ago (maybe not easy to see scales in the photos), the last decades cows has been bread bigger, and the old breeds are very scarce. So seeing theese old cow sheds now, unless you know cows used to be conciderably smaller, you wouldn't think they were used for cows.

      Visited during a road trip across the US late last year. Getting in took plenty of energy and ingenuity but it was well worth the effort!

      A couple of rooms hosted a very cool graveyard of technology

      looking on maps i spotted what looked like a line of old cars and some farm sheds
      off i went for a look
      the cars have gone , i dont think they actualy had anything to with what i did find tho after all 
      i think they were more to do with the houses behind the place
      the last bit of paperwork i found was dated 2009
      any way enough waffle. and on with the pics
























       thanks for looking

      Day 2 of the tour..........
      After the win that was the CDC we decided to do 2 residential places, our first place was suspended due to the stupid amount of traffic outside of it, so we thought we would do Tapioca whilst waiting for the traffic to die down.
      For me this was one of favourite explores of the tour, just the right amount of aging and it really felt it was lost in time.
      Went a bit OTT with the 60mm but no apologies

      1 more location and day 2 comes to and end................... more soon

      Hello, not sure on the full history of the place. I have found a little bit of information from Google. Great little house with a shop at the front. Loads of things left inside.   
      The Butcher’s Home – Belgium  An abandoned butchers house in Belgium. There lived a family of 10 people! a father and a mother and 4 boys and 4 girls. The home was abandoned in 1994 and left ever since!









      Thanks for looking!
