Werrington House

Werrington House is our pic OTD

Werrington House: Yesterday, for the first time in 183 years, Historic Werrington House was open to the public. We ventured along, as did a few other hundred people, sadly it was only open for three hours and there was a two hour wait to snout through the house so uninterrupted photo ops weren’t to be. It’s hidden right in the middle of 70s constructed suburban dreams so if it wasn’t for the new gates, you’d never know it was nestled in there. For many years it was home to the ‘Father of Federation’ Sir Henry Parkes, Premier of NSW on five separate occasions from 1872 to 1891 and is now owned by former NSW Opposition Leader Captain Peter Collins and his wife Jennine. The restoration is fantastic and it’s great that the owners have remained faithful to the historical value of the property – let’s hope they open up Werrington House again some time soon. 🙂
