The Lost Child At Barrington

14th March 1880. Tragedy struck one Sunday morning when Isabella, daughter of Mrs Harriet von Bibra, disappeared from outside her home in Lower Barrington. A massive search continued for days with constables and volunteers from surrounding districts.

Even a £30 reward posted by her uncle failed to turn up anything. Well over a year later, after a bush fire had gone through the area, Isabella's remains, complete with her hat were discovered by a local farmer. One explanation for her death was snake bite.

This mural shows an incident in 1868 when Mr Mitchell and his friend had been celebrating and the dough had over-flowed.

This quaint mural can be found on the wall of the original Wilmot Bakery, built in 1893.
