Passing of Lindsay Paish - Local Historian

Even though we posted the passing of Lindsay on our profile page, we felt that his death deserved to be noted.  Lindsay was born, educated and spent the early part of his life in Katoomba in the Blue Mountains before moving to Springwood with his wife.

He enlisted with the RAAF in the Second World War  and served in the south west Pacific.  Lindsay was a cartographer and in 1963 joined the staff of the Blue Mountains City Council.  Lindsay was instrumental in the first Heritage studies carried out in the Blue Mountains and eventually retired some years later.  He was a keen gardener and was a one-time member of the Springwood Rifle Club and North Springwood Development League.  We will miss Lindsay's dry wit and humour.

Hi there,

I've recently come into possession of some old family photos, one of them is captions "greenhays, Springwood". I google searched the name and a few of your articles mentioned it... im looking for some history on the house if possible. The photos are of my great grandparents and grandfather. Their surname was knox... I'm not sure how helpful any of that information is, but there are alot of photos of the house and gardens...

Any information on the house would be great!

Thanks alot!
