Poldenvale Lambway


On a recent walk, I saw this scale on top of some rather rusty looking ironwork. Whether the scale worked – (it was used for weighing lambs – possibly before sending them to market, or maybe for dosage of preventative medicine) – I don’t know.    It always seems a shame that farmers seem to have a tendency to allow their equipment to fall into disrepair after a period where they might have used it.  (Perhaps this one was abandoned before ebay days.)
