In a mad moment (we get more than our fair share of these!) we decided to take the old water tank down today - it is a spectacular blot on the landscape and highly visible from our vantage point in the mobile home!

in all it's glory!

first we have to cut the pipes off

this could be tricky

we're going to try and pull it down, without collapsing the well, or pulling down the gable!

one big heave should do it!


look what I did!

roadrunner is under there somewhere

it was quite a thump - must have been half a ton of soil in there

so heavy it crushed this galvanised pipe

beautifully preserved pipework

a Red Kite drops by
