Historic water tanks discovered at hotel site
Extensions to a Woy Woy hotel have been delayed as major obstacles were discovered during the groundwork stage.
Work on the Bayview Hotel were slowed when workers encountered historic underground water tanks.
"We discovered some pretty crazy underground water tanks that were apparently used for the steam trains," said Mr Jordan Harris, group general manager at Harris and Narvo Hotels.
"The footings were filling up as the tides came in and out," he said.
Mr Harris said he expected the new bar and beer garden would be opened in December, with work on the rooftop and internal refurbishments to be completed early in the New Year.
Mr Harris said: "We are hoping to attract a completely new range of customers while still keeping our old regulars content.
"We have had the pub for over a decade now," he said.
