Cranleigh, the home of General Legge that once stood in present day Belconnen. The wooden supports were needed after an earth tremor.

That video doesn’t really show much at all. 10 minutes walking around the place and you can see where the original foundations were (not where the stone blocks have been moved to) and where a lot of the fruit trees were planted in the front yard and courtyard. Video needed more of that and less of his head.
