Convict Stone - The Garrison Church - The Rocks - The HDR Series by 

I lay this foundation and cornerstone of the church to be built in this place, to be named the church of the Holy Trinity….: The speaker was the first Bishop of Australia William Grant Broughton, on a blustery Tuesday morning, 23rd June 1840.

And so the spot was declared for what was to more popularly known as the Garrison Church which still stands at the southern end of Lower Fort Street, cornering Argyle place in one of the most historically colourful areas of Sydney known as The Rocks

The builder was Edward Flood and accepted price for materials is interesting to scan, Bricks were 2/15 a thousand. A labourer worked 10 hours for 5/- a week while the bricklayer for the same period received 8/6. Henry Ginn, the architect of the basic structure, estimated that the church would house 250 adults and 50 children and in his original design his calculations were not far wrong.
