The old sod whare near the Heathcote Bridge

April 1911

The sod hut was the home of Captain James Penfold who was master of the schooner Excelsior which traded between New Zealand and Australia and was wrecked on the Sumner Bar. Penfold used material from the wrecked ship and sods cut from the river when building his cottage which was occupied until 1908 after which it became a picturesque ruin.
