Old house, Frimley, Hastings, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand

An old dilapidated house, on a block of flat Hawkes Bay farmland. Sheep graze in the background. This could easily be simply another abandoned farmhouse that has been replaced by a more modern design with more attention to simple things like insulation.


The real story is better told by Flickr maps, than it is by the photo. The maps show that the more likely story being told here, is that productive farmland is making way for the steady advance of urbanisation. New Zealand has a lot to learn about urban development alternatives.
