Storehouse at Ipsden, Oxon

A very unusual small timber framed building on stilts in Ipsden.

This building has presumably always been a storehouse due to the lack of windows.

It is currently used to store fertilizer, but may have originally been a grain store perhaps, lifted off the ground
to keep the grain dry.

The mushroom shaped stilts would have helped keep mice out, and the door even seems to have a catflap.
