These are photos that Carol took of historic Highfield House at Stanley, with The Nut in the background. Carol took these on New Year’s Day 2014, less than three months before she passed away ~ Greg Hale
Stanley: Historic Highfield House
Greg was under the impression that Highfield House was currently being restored to its original condition. There was a refurbishment launch (of the historic site in Stanley) announced via Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service on Facebook in December 2016…
Highfield Historic Site at Stanley has never looked better following the completion of a $430,000 project to conserve buildings at the site and install a commercial kitchen at the threshing barn. The project completion was celebrated by the Circular Head community last week.
The works have transformed the barn to be one of the North-west’s unique function centres, suitable for weddings and community events hosting up to 100 people.
The barn now boasts a new roof, new electrical system and lighting, and importantly, disabled access. A new commercial kitchen means that catering for functions can be done professionally by contract caterers. The stone walls and new timber floor of the barn make it a beautiful space when dressed up for events.
Other significant conservation works at the site include restoration and painting of the exterior of Highfield House, works to the chapel and the stables.
