Paul Revere re: Little tin bothy
Paul, your idea to potentially refurbish the tin bothy is admirable. Here is a photo of the current state of the bothy situated roughly half-way along the Bangor Trail. The metal sheet standing against the centre pole is an old information sign. The entire floor to the left of it is quite wet, and ready to break. This is because the skylight above is broken, letting in the rain, and saturating the thin wooden floor. Unfortunately my photo doesnít show the broken skylight, but the whole perspex panel needs to be replaced. The floor to the right of the metal sheet has the two holes in it as seen in the photo. However I was able to place the metal sheet over the holes and make my bed on it! Also the front door is missing the exterior sliding bolt so it canít be secured as you leave. It can be loosely tied with some old string on the inside to offer some protection from the elements!

Itís a great little structure to have available on the Bangor Trail, but sadly quite neglected. Good luck in your endeavours!
