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.
