SA Autumn Field Trip 17-18 April 2021
April 17 @ 10:00 am - April 18 @ 4:30 pm
Our Autumn Field Trip will be a spectacular journey – all by bus – through a region famous for its slate quarries, heritage buildings and dry stone walls and structures. Here are the details:
On Saturday the tour – 10am to 5.30pm – starts at Willunga and heads to:
- Martin’s Slate Quarry
- Willunga Slate Museum
- Delabole Quarry chapel
- …and properties with noteworthy old and new dry stone walls.
- Aldinga Arts/Eco Village dry stone work (of variable quality but interesting)
An optional group dinner will follow on Saturday evening where a wood-oven pizza will be created before your very eyes! This will be followed by a talk by renowned architect Phil Harris (see his article in Issue 47 of ”The Flag Stone”): Heritage matters
On Sunday – 9.30am to 4.30pm – we are off to the Strathalbyn/Highland Valley area to visit a number of historic properties.
Cost covers guided tours by buys, two lunches, tour notes, etc.
