St Albans Sydney in Winter

20150621_153434_Richtone(HDR)Sanna and I did a quick Sydney day trip to the old historic village of St Albans, 2 hours drive North of Sydney’s CBD. Its a very quiet tiny Aussie town/village.20150621_153733_Richtone(HDR)

Traditional old Aussie style buildings are throughout the village.20150621_153704_Richtone(HDR)

We went on a bushwalk to the Convict built ‘Old Great North Road’20150621_131526

Leg irons were worn by the Convicts as they worked to build the road.20150621_131231

I tried on the leg irons for size, they are really heavy20150621_131159

This was hangman’s rock where they used to hang the convicts through the hole from a tree.20150621_125038_Richtone(HDR)

and after the bushwalk a nice hot lunch followed by rhubarb crumble and a pot of tea to share in front of the Settlers Arms open fire.
