Huntley Stone Walls

Location “Cragieburn”, Huntley Road.

Statement of Significance

On the edge of a slight rise are the largely intact remnants of a dry stone holding pen or walled garden. Stone walls seem to have been relatively uncommon in the district, with post-and-rail forming the usual approach to fencing prior to wire fencing. The community consultation process identified these stone walls as a significant feature of the rural landscape.

Plantings of Hawthorns, often planted near nineteenth century homesteads, as well as stands of remnant vegetation grow within and adjacent to the area bounded by the stone walls.
