As I was just going out to feed the chickens this morning my wife said that a branch had fell on to the neighbours old stables/cowsheds. It seemed to have broke some slates and smashed some ridge tiles.
|What we could see from our drive|
I popped round to tell them but as soon as I got into their drive I could see it was a bit more serious that than!
A huge pine tree had come down and smashed across their drive into their courtyard. smashing a wall and damaging the side of the stable in the process.
|Tree was rotten in the bottom and broke clean off.|
|It must be over 60ft tall|
|This is where it hit the stable|
|Smashed in the court yard|
|Damage to the roof|
Luckily no one was hurt and also it was lucky that it hadn't come down in a different direction, Slightly more to the right and it would have hit their house, to the left it would have got hung in a Giant Wellingtonia and would have caused more damage.
They also had four cars stuck on their drive that we managed to get out behind the tree.
Made for quite an eventful morning!
