Stone rotunda Posted by Picasa

This is just sitting outside of Lawson. I am under the impression it may have been part of a larger estate that may have been hit by a bushfire, burning down the main house. The solid , well built and expensive-in-its-day fence surrounding the block of land plus some well paved areas indicate this may have been the case.

I wonder how many tea parties and cucumber sandwiches have ben enjoyed in this long forgotten building. It now sits with weeds growing on top. The construction is remarkable, being made from layer upon layer of local flat stones. At one stage it may have had a stucco surface that has fallen off with age. So this may be the skeleton.
