The map above shows the area boundary and is from a digitised version of the original map used during the scheme. Unfortunately no further information is available for this area in the REO magazine.

As we work through the process of digitising our collections, if we find any other content for this area then we will publish it here.

Or, if you have any information or photos relating to the electrification of the area, please contact us or post a comment below.  We would love to hear from you.
