A bit of oil and some air in the tyre and it wu=ill be as good as new. I'm always amazed at the stuff rusting away around farms. presumably at one time, it would have costa lot of money. Look at those stinging nettles just getting ready to bring days of misery to the hapless walker or biker at some point.
Chris: I think we have here a master class in redundancy:

a) In respect of the farm machinery

b) In respect of yourself not realising nettles are a valuable food plant
I wonder what it was? And how long it will take to rot away completely, swallowed by the vegetation!
Chris: It was a machine for turning cut hay in a field Tom
A place of rest and not getting in anyones way. Must have been there a while

Lovely bit of grunge Chris
Chris: Thank you and salutations Comrade
I think I've said before we have a farmer in my club and at one time he had stacks of old plant and machinery standing about, he seems to have disposed of some of it in recent times.
Chris: There's usually a photo opportunity somewhere with this sort of thing

What a great collection of rust and character, nature seems to be making itsel at home
Chris: It is gradually returning whence it came Anne
You can often find old haying equipment and more in woods and the edges of fields around here. The previous century through trash like this into the woods.
Chris: Lots of photo opportunities then!
Good find to share. He seems to like this place of rest.
Chris: Thank you Jacquelyn
