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.

Beckers Bridge over Webbers Creek

Bridges are not just functional, they can also be scenic and engineering attractions. Spare a few minutes to admire Beckers Brige over Webbers Creek.

Completed in 1902, Beckers Bridge is an early example of a DeBurgh timber truss road bridge. In 1998 it was in good condition. DeBurgh trusses were significant technical improvements over their predecessors. Situated in the Hunter region, Beckers Bridge gains heritage significance because of its proximity to 15 other historic bridges, each constructed before 1905. The Beckers Bridge is a representative example of DeBurgh timber truss road bridges and technically and historically important.

Vacy Bridge over Paterson River

Completed in 1898, the Vacy Bridge is an early example of an Allan type timber truss road bridge and in 1998 was in good condition.

As a timber truss road bridge, it has many associational links with important historical events, trends, and people, including the expansion of the road network and economic activity throughout NSW, and Percy Allan, the designer of this type of truss.

Allan trusses were third in the five-stage design evolution of NSW timber truss bridges, and were a major improvement over the McDonald trusses which preceded them. Allan trusses were 20 per cent cheaper to build than McDonald trusses, could carry 50 per cent more load, and were easier to maintain.

The Vacy Bridge is located in the Hunter region, and it gains heritage significance from its proximity to the high concentration of other historic bridges in the area.
