Wollar

s

The day I visited this town it was the day I made a decision to go find a little laid back country town like this and buy a property. And a year or so later we did, you can read about it over at Whistlers Rest.

So Wollar has held a place in my heart.  But in researching a little of its history I find it likely doesn't have a present let alone a future.  It was bought out by a mining company a year ago!

See Wollar as it was over at 100 towns.

  1. I hope there are no worries for those who used to live there.

  2. This is one of your towns I've been to. Hope the mine doesn't wreck the village (and your serenity).

  3. I really like the photo with its "no worries" and smiled seeing it. Than I read your post - a company buying a town. I am just reading the Telegraph article, I didn't know about these things before. Strange. And sad.

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.
