Werrington takes it’s named after “Werrington” estate which was owned by Mary King, the youngest daughter of Governor Philip King. Mary received a land grant of 790 acres in 1806. She went on to marry Robert Copland Lethbridge in Cornwall and they then returned to NSW. Lethbridge then purchased an additional 600 acres adjoining his wife’s grant and on this land they built their home, Werrington House, in 1832.
In the early days the land was used mainly for farming. Significant development occurred post-war and continued steadily through to the 1990’s when villas, townhouses and units were introduced to the area.
Located west of St Marys and north of the Great Western Highway, Werrington is only located ten minutes from the Penrith CBD and the Sydney International Regatta Centre. This suburb retains many picturesque areas of open space, many of which are used for educational and recreational activities.
