In May 2017 Peter Russell addressed the Gawler History Team regarding the restoration of Gawlers 330 Stone walls. The video is linked below.


The images in this section are taken from the Gawler Council publication “Historic Walls in the Public Environment, Gawler, SA – Conservation Strategy September 2007”. [Extracted with permission from McDougall & Vines HISTORIC WALLS IN THE PUBLIC ENVIRONMENT, GAWLER SA CONSERVATION STRATEGY 2007 report].

This document catalogues walls of historic importance in the Council area, identifies common construction and management problems, and suggests some of the best and cost effective methods of repairing, maintaining and preserving these walls.

Unfortunately a large number of the stone walls, that are still in existence, are in a very poor state of repair. The cost of repairing them correctly is often beyond the means of the property owners. The development of Phoenix Plaza, did however result in the extensive repair of the stone wall on the northern side of the property on Calton Road.

In this 2016 there has been a wonderful outcome of remediation of the wall at 25 High Street.
