Before Furnace Park

The site bounded by Matthew Street and Doncaster Street had many lives before it became Furnace Park. My interest is in how different types of people try to trace back into this layering of past uses and how and why they do it. In my research I study this trace-work as it is undertaken both by professionals (surveyors, engineers, planners, developers) and enthusiasts (amateur archaeologists, urban explorers, psychogeographers, poets and curious passerbys). 

Read Luke Bennett‘s fascinating post on the many incarnations of the site between Matthew Street and Doncaster Street that we have come to call Furnace Park.
