      Province of Nova Scotia Aug 14, 2014 at 2:52 PM

      We will be staying in Brackley Beach and want to find out if it is very far from Charlottetown.
      If so Is there public transportation that will go there?
      Are there restaurants in Brackley Beach -- I didn't see any listed in Brackley Beach only those in Charlottetown were mentioned.

    • STONE FOR CRUSHING HEMLOCK BARK!!

      by MacNeill Online Now Apr 26, 2004 at 5:20 PM

      I am looking for the location of the Stone, in Sherbrooke Village, that was taken there by the Nova Scotia Museum - about 1970. However, a tannery has not been built there at this date (Spring 1981) This is referenced in "Industries of Wentworth" by Ira Brown, born 1895, under Shoe Factory" pages 188-198 in the book: Lore of North Cumberland, by Harry R. Brown and others. The stone was made by Robert L. MacNeill, father of the late C.C. MacNeill of Oxford, who had a small tannery and shoe factory by the brook on the James A. Brown place, Lower Wentworth. He tanned his own leather. He built an ingenious method for crushing the hemlock bark. The main item in the process was a large round stone, about four and one half feet in diameter and eight inches thick with a hub cut in the centre through which a large wooden axle protruded and extended out so that a horse could be hitched to it and the large serrated stone followed a circular trough in which the bark and some water lay. As the horse moved in a circle the bard was efficiently chewed up and made available in its role of tanning the hide.
