Our friendly farming neighbours, the Fords at Yeowood Farm, have almost completed a year long conversion of some old pig kennels into a very swanky commercial swimming pool – soon to be available for hire by the hour.
A great example of farm diversification, particularly as they’re also growing large amounts of Miscanthus (Elephant Grass to you and me) to provide biomass fuel for a huge new boiler which will supply hot water and heating for the pool and their adjacent home. Neat.
As an hommage to the building’s hidden past, the pool boasts a splendid porcine mosaic in one corner – see pic.
I will add a click-through to their pool hire site when it goes live in a few weeks.
