I passed by this place at the M10 motorway in Moskshino (Tverskaja Region/Russia) for a hundred times without seen it… …and after I suddenly caught a glimpse of this spot through the trees in the evening sun, I was fascinated and I needed to now what it is.
THE SHIRE (Auenland) from ‘Lord of the Rings’ was my first thought! …but no Hobbits around… …so I dared to sneak around a little bit.
It turned out that this cubbyholes are used as a storage room. Covered all over with soil and overgrown by plants this storages offer a well tempered place for even storing groceries. Smart idea!
The original use in former times for this chambers was for charcoal burning. This is achieved by carbonising wood in a charcoal pile. And now, while I’m standing here, the round and organic shapes of this piles offers a picturesque landscape in this wonderful evening sun… …but still no Hobbits 😀 😀 …wait.. (and now for the most used questions in horror movies) ..what’s that noise?.. 🙂
