Today is as far as we will travel on the the Old Glen Innes Rd for the time being. Behind the stand of dark pines is Wintervale Station. Later on in the year I will will resume my tour of this historic road and include sights like the vanished township of Newton Boyd, Wytaliba Commune, the Mann River and the Big Hill.
Some have asked this week why 1961 was such a significant year in regards to Dalmorton and this road; In 1961 the new Glen Innes Rd, known as the Gywdir Highway, opened many miles to the north bypassing this road entirely. This historic road has been slumbering now for 50 years.
