Such a terrible shame that this historic ruin of an important infrastructure project of the 1930’s has been totally neglected by the private owners for so long.
The shale works closed in the 1950’s and subsequent governments did ABSOLUTELY nothing to preserve the important history.
For $5 you get a tour through dangerously long weeds, scrub and thistles, all the time waiting for a snake to loom large. No places to rest. Extremely hot. No shade, no refreshments.
My question is: “what do you do the the tourist dollars collected?”
It appears nothing. Certainly no grounds maintenance that’s for certain!
We were interested because our parents had worked on the site in the 1940’s. So disappointing, shame on the owners.
