the moon and Victoria's jubilee

local monument Castle Hill, seat of early settlers and site of a stone tower built to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897.

There used to be a pub next to the tower which sported a sign on its door "BEWARE OF THE POODLE" to which unsuspecting tourists scoffed and chuckled until greeted by a three-foot high German hunting dog putting its paws on their shoulders and commencing to devour their faces in a way redolent of a small child with an ice lolly on a hot day.
