Artist's Description

This historic Church is St Andrew’s Church of England. It was opened in the gold-mining town of Hill End in 1870. The original church bell can be seen on a wooden post to the left of the door.

My ancestor, Amy James, was baptised in this church during 1875. Her parents had travelled to Hill End during the gold rush where her father was one of the many who mined in the area.

Hill End is a former gold mining town in New South Wales, Australia. It owes its existence to the gold rush of the 1850s, and at its peak in the early 1870s it had a population estimated at 8,000.

Hill End is classified as a Historical site by the National Parks and Wildlife Service.
