Old Structure near Greenways

About 1 klm out of Greenways there are some old concrete slabs in a paddock. It doesn't look like much and your would probably miss it quite easily. The structure is about 20 feet long. (+/- guess) It would be on your left hand side if you were heading towards Naracoorte from Robe, but just before Greenways. I had seen it a few times over the years. I had been wondering what it was for some time. I had had determined that it could be a foundation for a dwelling of some kind. I therefore assumed it to be a relic from when they were initially draining the swamps in this area. Finally (after driving past it for nearly 5 years) I decided to investigate. If you would like to find this structure yourself. It is located just off the main road (Naracoorte to Robe) Perhaps only 15 to 20 feet on the other side of a barbed wire fence inside the paddock. The area looks quite overgrown. It seems to be slowly returning to its natural bushland state. Compared to the well used paddocks on the other side of the road. Although from google maps, its pretty easy to determine that both sides of the road were cleared for agricultural use at some time in the past.

Sheepdip?

Well.. It isn't a foundation of a dwelling. It looks like a sheep dip or something. I really dont know what it is. There are broken slabs of cement? laying around. But there are also intact slabs in place. I don't really know what to make of it. It certainly looks old. But looks can be deceiving.

But how old?

If anyone is able to shed any light on what this may be.. Or the age of it..

(Scoff if you must.. But you just never know.. Someday.. Oneday.. A wise internet sheepdip specialising historian, a veritable expert in sheep dippery may perhaps be able to place this thing exactly in history… And be thankfull for these very images.. Cough.. And then again.. Maybe not..)
