12.01.2012 - Storm damage

A severe storm blew over Bute and the farm during the night of 02.01.2012.

As the pictures below show, there was quite a bit of damage.

Poor old Dougal the Springer chewed his way out of the byre in fright. No wonder...

The wind had whipped away the roof over the old barn and stables

A close up shows some of the damage

Or from a different angle

And from the yard

The garage didn't escape either

The march wall between Ascog and the Landmark Trust also suffered

Further up the hill three large beech trees were felled

With one big root ball upended

Shallow rooted because they're on rock

It seems that the wind blows strongly over Ascog Farm.
