Hi Mike. Sorry to hear that you were unable to access JSTS Stonecutters during your recent H.K. visit. Looking at Google earth pictures and the added street view, you can get a good idea what it's like there now. Nice tall fences,some accomodation blocks and various sheds, as well as a lovely sewerage works. I also found out that you can take a bus there from Kowloon, but it stops short of JSTS. Roughly near the old Jr rates mess area. There is a chance that a pass can be obtained from the authorities, but this would have to be done "well in advance" of a holiday. If you search You Tube, there are a number of short films and even a T.V. programme produced shortly before 1997 change over. This shows a number of buildings and includes East Pier watchtower chapel. + a lot of historical Island history info. Ie. The tunnels and Ex-geisher house. ( Not in use during our time there I might add !! ) Somewhere in my loft I have a VIDEO tape recorded from the T.V. many years ago, about the islands birds. ( Feathered variety ) If I come across it, i'll let you know. From your ex neighbours at East View Bungalows. Colin & Carol. |
