Look after yer roof!

This is what happens when you don't look after your roof.

This little barn is attached to a cottage, just up at the other end of the village to us. 

This was taken in December 2012.  The roof has sagged and left the cement skirt around the chimney standing proud, and there are missing tiles on the ridge.

This is a photo taken today - we certainly didn't hear the crash, but it has happened in the last week or so as we passed there in the car only a week ago at the latest.

To be fair, the house (the building next door with the good roof) hasn't been occupied for many years - at least nine years or so I think, and these days, the barn is often the last to be repaired.

A shame, it's a lovely old building.
