I like corrugated Iron. Sadly, not much seems to be made of it any more, and what did exist is rusting into the earth. This little gem is the reading room and library of the picture-perfect village of Appleton-Le-Moors, off the A170 Kirkbymoorside-Pickering road. It was built in 1911 and restored in 2004 (or 2005 depending on who you ask). Driving up the road to the village feels like going up someone's private drive. Watch out for the sheep. They have the run of the place and are in no hurry to get out of the way, especially when there's someone's well-kept hedge to chew at.

What a lovely photo: Jarman-esque! These samll village reading rooms, Mechanic's Insitutes and the like, are so fascinating - particularly when the insides and contents are maintained too!!
