This gets my vote for the windiest spot in Sydney, although not too bad on my way to work today. Thanks to City of Sydney council for the added colour. St James is the oldest church building in Sydney and has been in continuous use from 1824. The building was originally designed to serve as a courthouse and was designed by the convict and architect Francis Greenway - originally sent downunder for forgery. You can see they are recoppering the steeple at the moment.
