  1. Good to see the woolshed still in good condition, though a little disapointed to see the ventilator above the door in disrepair. I renovated repaired the woolshed and original cottage approx 30 years ago, when Tony Mitchell owned it. The woolshed slabs on the west wall, about 25% had fallen out, nearly all the posts for this wall were replaced. There was unique shaping of the timber bearers under the gratings, which i had never seen before. all the new posts came from on the property.
    The original homestead was restored, with some new corner posts and reinstated of all slabs, windows and doors. The original shingles had long been replaced by corrugated iron. Tony’s wife saved the shingles of the roof of the Hermitage Hotel in Harrow when it was reroofed. We used these to reroof the homestead, they were 18″ x 4″, the ones on the stable were 30″ x 12″. I understand the Hotel was built about 10 years after these buildings, leaving me to assume that all the good shingle splitting timber had gone in 10 years.the bricks in the chimney had eroded away leaving holes in the chimney, we removed bricks and turned them, with good face out, hopefully preserving for a few more years. Tony had obtained a grant from Heritage Council to do this work.

  2. was actually looking for Clunie at Harrow, my wife’s G/G/Grandfather worked for Thomas Ricketts at Clunie. I came across photos of Harrow and district, so looked further. I admire your photos and site. I have thousands of photos of buildings and things, but sorrily not many people. I’m not sure what to do with them and am interested in how you came to do this site.

  3. Hi Melanie,
    Love your work on the rural scenes in the Western Distict/Wimmera and the obvious passion you have for this style of photography.
    Like you I am not qualified in any way but have invested in some expensive gear to capture similar scenes and my other photography passion, birds.
    I have just spent a week around Edenhope and surrounding areas photographing old woolsheds and farm buildings and was amazed at the beauty and serenity of the area.
    Keep up the great work.
    Darryl Kirby
