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. The sloping terrain at Freemantle is cleverly used to allow sheep to enter and leave the building via a two way race and a series of swinging gates which control the flow.
