Heritage info

Lately, I've noticed more information boards springing up around town.

They look like they're put up for tourists (check out the Japanese version) but they're also great for people who live here – like us – who are curious about the local history but don't know enough Cantonese to find out more.

Here's one about the watch tower in Chung Hau – turns out it's called Yu Tak Lei Yuen watchtower and was used to spot pirates coming up River Silver.

There are others scattered around the area but I haven't gotten round to taking photos of them yet. Will post more when I do.
