1061 viewings on 20 July, 2014.

St Mary’s church was consecrated on 1 June, 1848. Constructed of stone the furnishings are made of cedar. Widely known as the Woolpack Church because of its proximity to a hotel of the same name which was the scene of an encounter between the bushranger, Martin Cash, and the police.

In the mid 1880’s St Mary’s was the scene of a most romantic elopement involving Mary Spode (of the famous Spode pottery family)

I am a keen amateur photographer (progressing from a Brownie Box to digital) who loves to combine travel and photography. I have travelled extensively in Australia and New Zealand with other trips to parts of UK & Europe, USA, Africa, Scandinavia and Canada. My photography reflects my interest in culture, scenery and wildlife relating to these travels.
