Hunter (Living) Histories - Coal River Working Party - Carrington Pump House

Illustrations from Thesis 608 held in the University of Newcastle’s Cultural Collections (Auchmuty Library).

John Gibson was on 1233 ABC Radio this morning (8 October 2016) announcing the heritage nomination for the Carrington Pumphouse and the historic hydraulic works established in Newcastle in 1877. We were surprised to find that it had been established just a year after the one in the United Kingdom and predates the pumphouse in Sydney which was not built until 1891.
