Denniston

34

Denniston is a ghost town near Westport and is located high up on a lonely and remote plateau. You can take a drive up to the once thriving coal town and check out what remains, including a museum housed in the old school hall. The town was famous for its incredibly steep incline railway which was used to get coal off the plateau and down to the port in Westport, originally it was the only way for people to get to and from the town and you're bound to spot a few ghosts of people killed in collisions and runaways on the incline.
