What is interesting in the previous 1944 newspaper article (apart from the mention of Mrs Frame, who taught me!) is that when I went to the school in the 1960s, midday meals were held in the Orange Hall across the road, then we moved to the Mill Canteen, so clearly something had happened to cause a move to the Orange Hall, before the move back again to the Mill Canteen.

I only seen the cottages after they where uninhabited, from memory there was two sets and a stone well, old Bob Stevenson called it Upper and Lower Mussentown. As kids we brought the cows in for milking on Brysons farm. In summer the tractor and trailer used the laneway through the cottages to collect the hay, this was around 1971. James was running the farm then.

Guys could you try and liven it up just a little, we're all in danger of dying from extreme boredom. By the way does anyone remember Sydney?

If he was a tall, sort of stooped gentleman, then I remember him. My children went there for a few years 1978/79...and was he interested in Music?????  All these questions... ;)

I don't remember it but some I know do, apparently it closed about 1970. On the junction with Glebe Road. So far no photo's have turned up.

Hi there...I know this thread hasn't been posted on for a long time but I stumbled across it and I have found it fascinating! My family currently own The Castle that Sydney Hamilton used to live in and I'm currently trying to do some reach into the building! The mentions of The Castle on this thread are brilliant and the maps are so interesting! If anyone has anymore information or photos of The Castle I would love to put together all the puzzle pieces! I am especially intrigued about why it is called 'The Castle' and who lived in it before Sydney Hamilton!

The Castle is now used as a daycare nursery called The Nursery and while the building has been changed to suit the needs of the business, it still retains slot of its character, old fireplaces and parents who bring their children to us comment all the time about what a beautiful building it is!

Thanks in advance!
Anna

Would I be right to think you may have lived in the "Castle" once upon a time.
