Aboriginal History & CultureRegional DevelopmentLocalSocial HistoryColonialArchaeologicalLandscapeSydney - WesternHeritage Assessment Authors: Dr Sue Rosen and Vanessa Hardy as Cultural Heritage Connections Pty Ltd Client: Cityscape Planning + Projects Our team was commissioned to investigate the archaeological potential of the client's proposed 3-lot rural subdivision in Cranebrook. The client's property, Lot 211 at 1-13 Vane Street Cranebrook, was part of the original Village of Castlereagh, the site of which was nominated by Governor Macquarie in late 1810. Although the Castlereagh town plan had been laid out by January 1811, there was reluctance by locals to take up town lots and the town as such failed, due to the lack of water in its vicinity. The only lots taken up were those on the river side of the town.
