Mayfield tours

Helen Marshall’s tour of Mayfield

Mrs Helen Marshall was born in Mayfield in 1925 and has lived there for most of her life. In the Winter/Spring of 1995 she kindly agreed to conduct a set of heritage walking tours around Mayfield. These walks consisted of question and answer sessions concerning many of the historic houses and properties of the Mayfield suburb which were recorded and later transcribed. For a backgrounder on Mrs Marshall please click on her autobiographical recollections, otherwise, click below for transcriptions of the Heritage Walks 1 to 3.
