Lostock Dam


Lostock Dam is a minor rock fill and clay core embankment dam a concrete lined, flip bucket spillway across the Paterson River upstream the village of East Gresford in Hunter region of New South Wales. The dam's purpose includes flood mitigation, irrigation, water supply and conservation. Mini hydro-power facilities were retrofitted 2010.

Commenced in 1969 and completed in 1971, Lostock Dam is a minor dam on the Paterson River, a tributary of the Hunter River, and is located approximately 65 kilometres from both Maitland and Singleton, and also 93 kilometres north-west of Newcastle, on the upper reaches of the river.

The dam was built by Dumez Australia under contract to the New South Wales Water Department of Land and Water Conservation following the drought of 1964 to 1966. At that time there was a need for a water conservation storage in Paterson Valley to stabilise and further develop rural productivity.

Gresford Team Penning and Arena Sorting


Valley Team Penning was formed after a group of riders found there was a need for a club in the Lower Hunter/Newcastle area. The first event was held at Gresford in 2011 and was a massive success. Since then the club has grown with over 300 members aged from five up to 75 years young.

The event is run over two days with Team Penning on Saturday and Arena Sorting on Sunday. The aim is to provide a safe enviroment for all members and their families.

It is a western equestrian sport that has evolved from farm and station work separating cattle into pens for branding, doctoring, or transport. It is a fast-paced event that gives teams of three riders on horseback from 60 to 90 seconds to separate three specifically identified cattle from a mob and put them into a pen at the opposite end of the arena.
