We enjoyed a wonderful walk on 24 September when we were treated to a feast of fascinating information on the history of Mort’s Dock and Clarke’s Point by Chris Schofield, President of The Historical Society, who very kindly guided us through this interesting area as we re-discovered its history.

We were delighted to have members of both The Hunters Hill and Lane Cove Historical Societies join us in our group of 18 walkers and plenty of discussions as usual made it a very sociable event!

We finished off at Alfred Street and historic ‘Woodstock’ and also saw the site of a neighbouring house which was built in the 1930s and demolished in the 60s, where some beautiful stone walls and steps of its ‘secret garden’, buried under metres of weeds, have recently been unearthed by the Kelly’s Bush Regeneration group.
