ABANDONED

the old factory lies abandoned
overgrown and fire-damaged
where footsteps once echoed
only wind and rain remain

These are the remains of the original Ruawai Co-operative Dairy Company Butter Factory that was established in 1915, but which has been out of use for many years.  For a while there was an apartment on the upper level of the factory, but that was abandoned and was destroyed by fire in March 2015.
