Ilford


Today is Australia Day... wishing all Aussie readers a great day in our wonderful land.

We're at Ilford (population 250) which is a little bit past Running Stream.  I think the protest is about an extension to one of the coal mines risking the springs and creek, There is not much to Ilford  - a closed road house, a closed cafe up for sale, a cluster of houses and churches of both varieties ... the one below recently auctioned as residential.

    I do spy a fat little sheep.

  4. Letty you're right ... I had not noticed the chimney. Yes there is a fat little sheep in the yard, in fact there was a small flock of them.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
