This illustrated talk discusses the neighbours of the Great North Road when surveyed, the effects of the road on the subsequent settlement patterns and the influence of the road on some family settlement and marriage patterns along its length. Also discussed will be the contribution the Great North Road made to communications and the establishment of neighbourhoods. How did its construction from 1826 to 1836 affect your neighbourhood? Join the Convict Trail Project as they celebrate 190 years since construction began.
