The distinctive 1970s clock in High St, Trentham, holds special significance for the town: it commemorates the life and career of Dr Gweneth Wisewould.
Trentham’s police complex is thought to have had only a single cell until 1879, when a rod-and-slab portable double cell arrived from Kyneton.
The Trentham district has had 21 schools since the first was built in the 1850s. Only two are still operating.
The little weatherboard cottage at 3 Camp St was Trentham’s police station from 1866 to 1984. That it is still standing today is largely due to Sgt Jack Burke.
Trentham’s original public swimming pool opened in the 1920s. It had a rough concrete base from which every swimmer expected to lose “a yard of skin”.
The Commercial Hotel was the first brick building in Trentham. It stands on the left of High St, on the brow of the hill, as you enter the village.
