Here's one that I don't think I would have liked to pass when it was being properly used.  



I can think of a few people who should be sent through it now.

If you're looking for that elusive Land-rover part, or other redundant agricultural stuff, you may like to sift through this lot.  



I think you would need some rust remover though.

This gate leads to an old house at Hayes Barton, near to East Budleigh.
Walter Raleigh was born here in 1552.



Its plan shape is E, said to denote allegiance to Queen Elizabeth I.
It is now a pig farm.

This seldom used gate leads to a field overlooking the River Exe as it flows to the sea.



On yonder side of the valley is Dawlish and beyond you can see Dartmoor.

Thanks Yorkshire Geordie!  That takes me back to my Devon days; for a few years I used to live in Bradninch and drive to Budleigh Salterton to work each day.  And to think I used to complain about that commute!

I like the picture of the rusty old iron horse. I bet some blood and sweat was toiled over that in its time.
