Blayney to Wimbledon Road (near Newbridge), then overnight stay at Bathampton, Friday 30th October 2015

The marchers left Blaynyey from near the Blayney War Memorial where they stopped marching yesterday at 8 am, after a comfortable night at Blayney Showground.

They finished the day’s marching at the intersection of Wimbledon Road and Bathampton Road at 3 pm (from where they will continue in the morning), then took the minibus provided by Clubs NSW to ‘Bathampton’ property for an overnight stay in the woolshed, which is on the site of the old woolshed that the Coo-ees stayed at in 1915.

The property owner said that a lot of the material from the original woolshed, such as the corrugated iron roof, was reused in constructing the current woolshed on the same site.

  1. Helen, hi.

    A couple of friends and I were really keen to join the ‘Coo-ees’ for the re-enactment march until a couple of medical problems got in the way. However, the next best thing to being there has been your amazing descriptions of the march’s progress. Thank you for helping us feel a part of this remarkable event. Well done and we look forward to following the ‘Coo-ees’ the rest of the way to Sydney.

    Again, many thanks for all your efforts – they’re very much appreciated.

    Regards. Stuart Salvage
