Werrington House

 Werrington House had an open day on the 18th October and several of our members attended. The house was built by Robert Copland Lethbridge and his wife Mary King, the youngest child of Governor King. It was started in 1829 and completed in 1832 and was on two combined land grants, which made up the original 1291 acres.


We did not go into the house as the queue was 100m long and only eight people at a time were admitted. Instead we explored the grounds and the outbuildings. These ranged from the original kitchen to several sheds   situated on the now 5 acre area.
It  was an enjoyable way to spent a nice sunny day wandering the grounds, and we are looking foreword to the next time it will be open.
