Old weatherboard house

0606 old weatherboard house

I've driven by this so many times. It's on what is some of the oldest farmland in Australia, dating back to the earliest days of white settlement. Now it's being used as a storage shed; but I always wonder about its history and those who built and lived in it. Surely it won't be swallowed up by the Penrith Lakes Scheme.

What with a particularly nasty lurgi (this one a head and chest cold) and multifarious work deadlines, the blog has been lagging. But it's all caught up now, woohoo!

Nice old cottage - part flora now. On Castlereagh Road?

Thank you. Castlereagh Road as is, yes.
