Clandulla #50

1. Closed Railway station, Clandulla
2. Closed general store
3. Closed school
4. One of the local houses
5. The rural setting

Clandulla is a railway town.  It sprung into being with the arrival of the railway which facilitated the opening of a coal mine nearby.  With 30 or 40 houses in the vicinity of the railway station it's alive but seems to never have been much of a town in the typical sense -- it doesn't seem to have had churches or a hotel.  There is a general store now very closed like the railway station.

Many of the houses are rudimentary and most are set well apart from each other.

But it's close to bigger centres and is in a peaceful scenic setting, enough to attract city folk like us to buy into its rural tranquility.
