BLYTH

Blyth is an intersect town between Clare and Snowtown. Blyth is a very small town, but that said does have some interesting characteristics. Not sufficiently though to make a diversion. Blythe is a very friendly place.

The township was proclaimed in 1860 and named in honour of Sir Arthur Blyth, who arrived in South Australia as a teenager with his parents in 1839 and went on to become a businessman and parliamentarian. The township of Blyth was founded in 1875. The town is named for the northern English city of Blyth.

Blyth is recognized as being a strong small community with a big spirit. The town today boasts a General Store, Post Office, Pub and Gallery/Studio, as well as sporting facilities for football, netball, bowls, cricket and golf. Several businesses based in Blyth service the region. A recent addition is the Blyth Cinema housed in a renovated Masonic Hall.

The Blyth War Memorial is located at the end of the main street and is very prominent.

The remaining active church in Blyth is the Lutheran.

The Anglican, a century old building, is now an art gallery.

The Blyth Hotel is a grand structure that has a high profile within the community.

If travelling through and the timing is right pop into that imposing hotel.
