Freemantle Woolshed

Freemantle Woolshed, 32 kms northwest of Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia. This shed, also called the Weathershed, dates from about 1897 and is heritage listed. It is still in use and has been re-clad since this photo was taken. As sheep must ideally be dry for shearing they are housed in the space beneath the building and herded up a series of ramps when required.
