    My Grandfather Nathaniel Alfred KEMSLEY was a Market gardener and wanting the Train to stop to pick up his Produce for the Sydney markets; was told that if he built a Platform, the Train would stop; so he built KEMSLEY HALT; remnants of, still existed when visited a few years back now.

    Thank you Robert for your interesting information. I am interested to hear more about the property. How many years did your grandfather operate the market garden? Was the property passed from generation to generation? Do you have any photos?
    Thanks again

    My Grandfather's property I understand was passed down to Daughter Winifred Gladys KEMSLEY on her marrying Donald BROWN in 1933; the property later passing out of KEMSLEY hands.
