Video of last week's walk CBM15 Today we walk from Blaxland to Glenbrook. Glenbrook Lagoon, Lennox Bridge and Glenbrook Tunnel are the highlights of the walk. The disused Glenbrook Tunnel is steeped in history. It was used as a secret site for mustard gas storage in World War II and in recent years housed a mushroom farm that one local MP called a "doss house". The Lennox Bridge is a heritage-listed road bridge at Mitchells Pass. It is the oldest stone arch bridge on the Australian mainland. https://arhsnsw.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/1806lapstone.pdf Glenbrook Lagoon is a rare upland wetland that is one of only three of its kind in the entire Hawkesbury-Nepean System. The lagoon provides habitat for flora and fauna species that are otherwise unusual in the area Steep and slippery sections. No-touch sign-on. Social distancing will be observed.
