Lake Macquarie History

Inglewood Street

Originally an unnamed street it was gazetted Inglewood Street on the 9th of May 1969. There are some semi-rural properties on this street. This street name may have been taken from Inglewood, an estate that was near Cooranbong. Mr F.A. Hely was accidentally killed on his Inglewood Estate (Maitland Mercury 20 July 1880).

The famous Inglewood Estate, containing approximately 653 acres fronted the main road from Maitland to Gosford in the Cooranbong District. This first class grazing property was instructed to be sold by Mrs F.A. Hely on 5 November 1886.
