Bakers Cottage

Bakers Cottage, built in 1865, was renovated in 2009.

The cost was $40,000, coming from HAMP (the Heritage Asset Maintenance Program) funding, and DECC internal funding.

The works included the installation of windows and doors, repointing old mortar joints, the removal of the concrete block and sink stand behind the building, the replacement of timber lintels inside the building, the replacement of barge boards and installation of new guttering, down pipes and flashing; the stabilisation of one of the corners over building to prevent subsidence and the restoration of the old chimney. All work was supervised by Lane Cove National Park ranger Andrew Duffy and DECC Cultural heritage officers.
