Farm gates have changed a lot over the years. The new ones are very efficient and practical but don't have the charm of the old wooden ones. The gate in the background is the only wooden one left on the farm.
It was here before we moved in so I don't know how old it is. To me the wooden ones have a lot more character and personality, do you agree?
This one is still in good condition so I will be able to admire it for a few years yet and the lichen will get to grow undisturbed - except for the odd nibble by the sheep and the cows.
