Dyes Slaughter House

In Kaukapakapa stands this old shed on a comical lean, yet it’s still in a lot better condition than some other sheds on the Northland highway which are piles of rusty metal and wooden planks. The wind will have to try harder if it wants to knock this old boy down…

Update: Thanks to Bobbie for identifying this shed as the Dyes Slaughterhouse!

    1. Thanks :) I am not sure exactly.. there are plans to fence it off from the cows in the paddock surrounding it, it would be pretty difficult to butcher a large animal in there though, so I think you’re right!


    1. This is the only one I have seen like this, other sheds on the highway are typical design with a lower roof height. Edit: It’s height is ideal for hanging meat as I have been advised that it is an old slaughter house.
