Werrington

Property Focus

Werrington lies approximately 48 kilometres west of the Sydney CBD and is in the local government area of the City of Penrith.

History tells us that the first land grant in the area was made in 1806 to Mary King, youngest daughter of the Governor Phillip Gidley King. She didn't take possession of the property until 1827, after her marriage to Robert Copeland Lethbridge.They built a house, which they named Werrington and farmed the surrounding estate until 1865 when Robert Lethbridge died. The house (which is still standing in Werrington County) was leased to NSW premier Henry Parkes between 1860 and 1872. Parkes arranged for the construction of a private railway platform nearby. In 1878, it was opened to the public as Parkes Platform but was renamed Werrington in 1893. The railway station provided the nucleus around which the town grew although its distance from Sydney and Parramatta meant it never became a particularly large centre. The Werrington estate was sold and subdivided from the 1880s. Werrington Post Office opened on 1 October 1891.
