Other observations
1. Highest peaks in Clyde, 150ft above sea level
West of Clyde Road (Clyde-Five Ways Road), between Moores Road and Ballarto Road (165 Clyde-Five Ways Road)
Northern side of the Pound Road - Hardys Road corner and eastern side of Pound Road (1505 Pound Road and 1450 Pound Road)

2.The steep land slope between Ballarto Road (150 ft), Derricks Road (50 ft) and on the railway line south of Yallambee property (25 ft).
This explains why the railway was lowered below the road surface, building the Ballarto Road bridge, so that the steam trains could puff up the hill from Tooradin to Clyde.

3. Water hole at the end of Yallambee Road. Could this be the location of the Fields Water site?
