Tuesday's Treasure


Saturday past was National Trust Open Day across the UK so we decided to head to Springhill near Cookstown.  It is a former plantation settlement house when the Scottish Coyningham family from Ayrshire bought land cheaply to settle in Ulster back in the 1660's.

It is a lovely old place and some of the farm machinery from over a century ago is painted up and on display.







Linking with Tom's Tuesday Treasures.  Click HERE to see lots more interesting finds!

Have a great day!

  3. Its a lovely building, and a great idea to show how the land was farmed with this hundred year old machinary. I would have liked to look inside the house.

  4. What a fabulous home! It's stately and grand. My Amish friends still use horse drawn farm machinery like these pieces. Thanks Christine for sharing these UK treasures this week and I hope that you return soon.

  8. What a fabulous place to visit. We don't have places or times like this in the US - it is a shame we don't honor the old things here as much as other countries do. Lovely photos.

  12. Interesting old equipment. We have old farms hiding in the bush here in BC. We've been to a few but they aren't restored. In a way I like seeing them just as the owners left them and the forest has reclaimed. - Margy
