Fowlers Hut, St James Conservation Area
A two-roomed historic hut originally built for maintenance of a rabbit-proof fence, that has had the intervening wall linings removed. Some graffiti from 1939, as well as more recently.
It’s just off the main Rainbow Road, not exactly a highway, but suffers from excessive visitors arriving by motorised transportation, without anyone much staying.
Needs a bit of love.
