Carcoar - Millthorpe - Orange - Day 43

The wind turbines looked lovely in the morning

Went for a wander around historic Carcoar. The Trembath family had been here in the 1870s. The whole main street is remarkable as every building is the historic one. It was also unusual as there was a small cemetery at the back of the Anglican Church. I didn't bother with the cemetery here, as, even though the family lived here, I don't think any died here. 

The Commercial Hotel 1863

Not far up the road was Millthorpe, and I quickly found the Uren graves I was looking for. Millthorpe also looks like a quaint little place to visit. 

James Sweet Uren & his wife Elizabeth Ann Cundy (she remarried but was buried with him)

We arrived in Orange and booked into the caravan park for 2 nights. We were both hot and tired so had a nap before going for a look around town, and the cemetery.
