12/04/2016   Photo a Day   Hole

This is a big hole near Ypres Belgium created by a huge bomb underneath German forces in World War 1.The blast was so big it was even felt in London and was the turning point in the western front campaign.The Bomb was placed underground after much work carried out by Australian Miners.
There was a book and a movie about this called Beneath Hill 60. I visited this area in 2006 because my Grandfather fought and was injured near Ypres.

The Bathurst Courthouse is one of Australia's best examples of Victorian era public architecture.

This magnificent building was opened 16 July 1880, and is situated in the heart of the city. It is listed by the National Trust and was designed by James Barnet .

The courthouse is the regular venue for sittings of the court of petty sessions, district and supreme courts.

The east wing now houses the Bathurst and District Historical Society Museum, while the west wing is occupied by the Mitchell Conservatorium Incorporated.
