Heritage Walk - Knightsbridge

In the 1840's Captain Hall of Port Adelaide bought 134 acres for 600 pounds. Architect Thomas Price, the surveyor of Beaumont, announced on 07 October 1848 that a Village of Knightsbridge had been laid out between two streams. The name was taken from a well-known suburb of London.....

The walk is approx. 3 kms long with perhaps another 1km approx. if we walk back to the Feathers Hotel and/or Cafe for drinks/coffees etc afterwards....

Meetup Fee - $1.00

(NOTE this was originally the Burnside Heritage Walk... now moved to Sunday 02 September 2012 at 12:00PM)

    Had a good walk and chat - not quite as many things to actually see as the walking guide suggested as a lot were 'former sites'. Also, one house owner "called out the hounds" to see us off! Good lunch and chat afterwards - thanks for organising Eric!

    Hey every one. Look forward to meeting you all there. By the way what is the actual address of this place so I can key it into my GPS and know where to find it?

    @Claire.... the brochure says 1.5 hours.... but for 3kms I doubt it... I would say an hour maximum!....

    I am a 'maybe' will try and confirm asap. Do you know how long you expect the walk to take??

    What a bummer - I have rsvp'd with Ausralian international volunteers for this sat. This does sound interesting. Perhaps Purple and I will do it on our own one day, when it isn't raining!

    Hi again, and again, did you know you can walk to Mt Lofty from Beaumont House, for those whom are keen, that is an option on the day!

  • Wendy E.

    Hi Eric, just a heads up, Beaumont House is open on the 1st Sunday of September and December with entry being $5.00, afternoon tea as well! Check out the website and perhaps we can alter the date. Cheers.
