Eltham Mud Brick walk

As part of the regular excursions program offered by the Eltham District Historical Society the next visit will comprise a guided walk through the precinct covering John Street, Eltham and nearby streets, where there is a concentration of mud brick houses dating from the 1940s through to quite recent times. This free walk, led by Russell Yeoman, passes houses built by Alistair Knox, Gordon Ford, Peter Glass and others who made significant contributions to the Eltham tradition of earth building.

The walk will start at the Eltham Local History Centre, 728 Main Road, Eltham at the corner of Brougham Street (Melway Ref. 21 J7) at 2.00pm on Saturday 7th July. The distance is about 3 km and will take 2 to 2.5 hours.
This walk will traverse the streets of Josiah Holloway’s 1851 Little Eltham subdivision.
All welcome but numbers are limited.  Bookings required:
