The abandoned Lincoln Oakbank Brewery is slowly being reclaimed by nature. Now a haven for climbing plants, birds and clusters of spiders, the skeleton of the original five-storey tower is as beautiful as it is sad. I know little of the history of the brewery or when it closed, though a single abandoned shoe (pictured below), appeared to suggest something sinister in the site’s more recent history. This striking relic can be found on the side of the Newell highway at historic Narrandera, NSW.

Here are some photos I took while passing by last week.
