Thor went to Lue near Mudgee to get these posts from a paddock where they had been sitting for several years. They were from the demolition of a railway trestle bridge that serviced the steelworks at Bullaroo, just south of Newcastle city. These are all Iron Bark and are 140 years old and in excellent condition and seriously heavy!
As you can see in the images, there are some fantastic details such as steel end caps that can be reused as a feature on a pergola, or cleaned up and left as we have done here. Some of these have been snapped up by our commercial clients - watch out for the new barns going up at the Truffle Farm on Mt Majura!
