• See NPA Bulletin 1995 article here by Matthew Higgins. This is what Matthew wrote:

“A short distance to the south-east of Russ’s hut is the ruin of the single-stand shearing shed built by Russ in 1964. It consists of a range of forms of timber and is of quite some interest, not least for the way that it, in common with other ruins, is a trigger to the visitor’s imagination. This site too reflects a key aspect of pastoral use of Bushfold.”
