Details (Known As) Glencoe Woolshed
Registered Name Woolshed
Significance Constructed in 1863, the Glencoe Woolshed is significant for representing the wealth and status of the pastoral era in the South East of South Australia. It was the centrepiece of one of the region's earliest and most successful sheep runs, pioneered by the Leake family during the 1840s. The Woolshed is an early and rare example of a large two-board linear woolshed having retained its nineteenth century blade shearing configuration, and is one of the few intact early works of the prolific regional architect, William Thomas Gore. The sophisticated combination of forms and elements create a building of significant architectural merit, and one which influenced the design of other woolsheds in the South East. The Woolshed remains an important visual landmark, as well as serving as the key symbol of the past for the Glencoe community.

While due care has been taken to ensure that the SA Heritage Places Database accurately reflects the South Australian Heritage Register and listings of Local Heritage Places in Development Plans, the State of South Australia does not accept liability for the use of the SA Heritage Database for any purpose. Users should consult the Department for Environment and Water - Heritage South Australia to confirm the listing of State Heritage Places and the relevant Development Plan for Local Heritage Places/Contributory Items.

In the majority of cases, the maps of State Heritage Places on this web site show the footprints of the most significant structures on a registered Place. However, sometimes they simply indicate the complete area of land comprising the Place. Work is proceeding to further refine the mapping of such places. It is also important to note that development control is not limited to the registered structures but extends to their setting and structures nearby (what is termed ‘development affecting’ a State Heritage Place). Hence it is vital that exact details of the listed place and implications for any proposed development be discussed with Heritage South Australia staff, as they cannot be deduced solely from the information on this web site. The inclusion of a place in the SA Heritage Register gives no right of public access. Permission to visit properties must be sought from the owners. The accuracy of the mapping of State Heritage Places is not guaranteed. Please contact Heritage SA ( https://www.environment.sa.gov.au/topics/heritage/sa-heritage-register) if you believe there is an error.
