HAVILAH CHURCH - Part 2
After spotting the Homestead, we could see a gorgeous, pretty little stone Church located near the road, so the car was stopped, and off I went to explore.
I found out this information..................
Havilah Memorial Church, which is built of stone, was attended by the White family. It was built in 1905 in memory of Henry Charles White, who bought Havilah from the original owner in 1881.
It is a small family chapel, but quite isolated from the house. Officially an Anglican Church, it is now mostly used for baptisms and weddings.
The church is located on "Havilah," on the Lue Road.
KANDOS - PART 6
After enjoying my walk around Rylstone, it was back in the car and onto the next town which was Kandos (est.1913)
This Town had an interesting sight as we were driving in, a flying fox (rope - way) carrying buckets across roads and over the country side, we never did find the end.
We did find out that Kandos is an industrial town, and that the New South Wales Cement Lime and Coal Company has its operations here because of local supplies of limestone. Coal, limestone and shale were discover in the 1800's, with the town only flourishing in 1915 when cement manufacturing began. The rope-way carries the limestone from the quarries to the plant for processing.
The Kandos Cement works are now the largest in the southern hemisphere.
Of interest is the way Kandos was named. The town got its name from an acronym based on the names of the six directors of the company.
It also was one of the first towns in NSW to have electric lighting, which was generated at the factory.
There is an industrial museum in Town if you are interested, we did not go in.
And..........in this town, there were strings of Bras hanging across the streets, once again, raising money for the Cancer foundation.
Located on Lue road, Ilford end.
