Polygon Type B - Building footprint
Details (Known As) Stanley Bridge Hotel
Registered Name Hotel - Stanley Bridge
Significance First licensed in 1853 and originally known as the Ford Inn, it was renamed the Stanley Bridge Inn by licensee J Stanley in 1857 when the ford on the Balhannah Road was replaced by a bridge. The hotel is significant for representing the early settlement of the township of Grunthal (now Verdun). The Onkaparinga Heritage Survey of 1983 also recorded that 'it is the only hotel in the district in which the original portion of the building has remained clearly identifiable through more than 130 years of continuous licencing'. The Survey further suggested that the original structure may have also been known as the Fourth Hill Hotel (licensed 1851-2), the location of which is recorded as Balhannah.

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.
