Once the site of a thriving shale oil mining industry.
Well preserved remnants of the area’s mining history, including old coke ovens, brick kilns, paraffin sheds and crumbling walls. Newnes Ghost town I used to call it back when I first came here with my family when I was around 9 or 10 years old . Been coming here now for nearly 40 years .
Now its called Newnes Industrial Ruins located in the Wolgan Valley near Lithgow Blue Mountains . 6D Canon 14-40mm L - 28 minutes ago
