Welcome to (Tin Town) Birchinlee
Welcome to (Tin Town) Birchinlee
The village of Birchinlee became better known as Tin Town, because of the corrugated iron used for the outside walls and roofs of the buildings. For 10 years it was home to between 600 and 1000 people including navvies, their families, shop keepers, a school teacher, missioner, doctor and policeman. The village was dismantled when the dams were completed, and today little remains of its existence.
