Artist's Description

As you disembark at Wiseman’s Ferry and turn left, you will come across a little white bridge – quaint but not too spectacular. Take the time to climb down into the rocks at the side of this bridge and you will see more convict stone work – the formation of a high sided culvert that forms the watercourse under the bridge. The Thomas James Bridge was built in around 1830.

Research has revealed that Thomas James was a convict who arrived aboard the “Recovery” in 1819 at the age of 24 to serve a life sentence. In 1824 he was working on the Bathurst Road Party and was then transferred to Road Party 25 at Wiseman’s Ferry where on obtaining his Ticket of Leave in 1830 was appointed overseer of the convicts working on this project.
