THE en­closed pho­to­graph is of a 300-ton hay stack, be­lieved to be the largest in Eng­land. This huge stack was built last year by Messrs. Warren and Son, Ip­swich. Mea­sure­ments are as fol­lows: length, 31yd; width, 11yd; height from ground to eaves, 16ft; height from ground to top of thatch, 30ft. I had a great dif­fi­culty in get­ting the pho­to­graph and even­tu­ally man­aged it by climb­ing on the roof of some sheds. An el­e­va­tor worked by a petrol en­gine was used for build­ing it.—s. A. Brown
