Artist's Description


I have quite often driven past this cottage , you can catch a view of it buried way down and overgrown, I remember many a time thinking I must stop and have a peek. Well looks like i did, all I know is it has a signe saying Ross Cottage c 1898, its boarded up and is secured with a chain link fence, but it does have a sign not to enter it is dangerous , but a promising note that it is being restored.

I believe it may have been the Staion Masters house for the railway that is reasonably close.

Waverton was named in 1929 after the Waverton Estate of an early resident, Robert Old. The land once belonged to William Carr, who named it after an English village connected to his family.

The North Shore railway line was extended south from St Leonards to Milsons Point in 1893. The station in this area for nearly forty years was known as Bay Road, after the thoroughfare that crosses the railway line. The local progress association recommended a change and Waverton was chosen in 1929.
