The land that is Abbotsley today, along with what is Sarn today, was subdivided in 1979 off two larger blocks - lot 26 which was Edna Walling's 'Sonning' and lot 3 as you can see in the subdivision drawings below.
Next to Abbotsley's gate is a short section of post and rail fence that has been lying on its side and nearly buried in ivy for many years - long before we came here in 2011. So today, during the village working bee, we decided it was time to see if we could lift and support the old fence without it completely falling apart. Success - a little bit of history reclaimed!
