Pontypool Grain Elevator

Along the old CN rail bed in the unincorporated village of Pontypool, Ontario, stands the abandoned Pontypool Grain Elevator. It is one of only two freestanding grain elevators left in Ontario, a reminder of the agricultural history of the region. CN Rail has given the Elevator to "Friends of The Pontypool Elevator", a goup that hopes to have it declared a heritage site.

While the Elevator itself is sealed tight, there is an adjacent abandoned storage shed that was worth a peek.

As I went walking, I saw a sign there and on the sign it said “No Trespassing”. But on the other side, it didn’t say nothing. That side was made for you and me. - Woody Guthrie

Isn't there a grain elevator in Stouffville, ON too? Right on the train tracks on the north side of Main St? Former Co-op building. UE DB: http://www.uer.ca/...ow.asp?locid=25608

Things and stuff is a pretty nice shot, and pp would be infinitely better if the building was straight, or perhaps my head is just crooked...

I'm pretty sure that I was with fedge when the interior shots of the elevator were taken, so he may have some more

2 in Ontario? Aren't Victory Soy and Collingwood considered grain elevators?

the few sources i found all state that this is one of only two freestanding grain elevators in the province. that could be wrong.

A grain elevator is usually only just a part of a larger milling facility like our malt, Victory Soy or the several operating mills in existence.

I -think- Pontypool elevator is a 'freestanding' elevator because it is not attached to any silos, or mills. Farmers dumped grain in the hopper, the elevator pulled the grain up and spit it out into a train car.

That's my two cents worth.

Mrs. French's cat is missing. The signs are posted all over town. "Have you seen Honey?" We've all seen the posters, but nobody has seen Honey the cat. Nobody...
