Part of the Dunsland Estate forms a training site for Holsworthy Bee Keepers Association and it’s old engine house is used by members as a place to “relax”. But with recent high winds it’s a miracle this historical building is still there. As the recent high winds whistled through the ancient trees of Dunsland, there was one casualty, an impressive Lime tree which alone would have, without a doubt crushed the building beneath it. Luckily, it’s fall was cushioned by a large stand of Laurel and a an Oak limb which was left straddling the roof. This was a specialist job and as such we called in the experts who adeptly unveiled the engine house to reveal the damage- two broken ridge tiles!?!
A miracle I’d say and the toilet lives to see another day.
