Statement of Interest

Almost certainly arose through Hunter patronage, employing

same red sandstone in which Thurston House had just been

remodelled. Slated panel below sundial bears poem by Rev

E S Bartlett, who may have gifted it to the post office,

it follws the form of slated, inscribed panel seen on

Thurston Jubilee Trough, listed separately.
