Eyre Penfield

The City of Playford has a lot of housing development happening now.  We have Blake's Crossing, Lakeside at Andrew's Farm, and now a new development Eyre Penfield

There was a great article in the Messenger 24 April, 2013 about the area, 100 years ago.  It featured the photograph I posted not long ago featuring the Smitham property.  Eyre Penfield sits on land that was once owned by the Smitham family until 1965 when it was compulsory purchased by the government.   

Once open farming land where stock roamed and lucerne grew, it bears little resemblance to its past.  They call it progress.
