Reader’s letter – the tunnel

IT is interesting to read of the history behind the drain that was uncovered in Humphrey St last week, and the other articles regarding tunnels and drains to Willow Court.  What is extremely frustrating is that these stories only come to light during an event such as the burst water pipe in Humphrey St.

How much more interesting it would be for tourists and locals alike if the wonderful stories of New Norfolk’s built and social history were permanently displayed.  What is needed in New Norfolk is a heritage trail with interpretation boards that depict pictures and stories of significant sites, historical  events and social stories around the whole town, linking Willow Court, the town, Esplanade and Turriff Lodge and other sites that are of significance.

The current Spatial Plan that is open to public comment until November 24 attempts to address this issue.
