Originally named Bigge’s Bridge, Richmond Bridge is Australia’s oldest bridge still in use. It was built in 1823 by convicts from sandstone quarried at Butchers Hill and hauled by hand carts to the bridge site. The cutwaters were added in 1884. The bridge is said to be haunted by several ghosts, including Grover, a cruel flagellator. There wasn’t one of us in our tour party who was not totally captivated by the charm of Richmond – a truly delightful place in which we would have loved to just wander around at leisure. But we were so glad we at least had the chance of visiting.
