Photographer's Note

This is one of the picturesque churches in the Barossa Valley. I am not certain whether it is in Light Pass or Stockwell. However it is one of the a Lutheran Churches.

The Barossa Valley was named in 1837 by South Australia's first Surveyor general, Colonel William Light. The area, named after Barrosa in Spain, was first settled in 1842 by English and German settlers. The largest group comprised the Germans who had fled religious persecution in their homeland. Within a short time the valley developed its own culture and life style which has remained till today. Settlements were established at Bethany, in 1842, Angaston, Krondorf, Ebenezer, Penrice, Light Pass and Langmeil. Langmeil was settled in 1843 by a group of German Lutherans who had arrived with Pastor Kavel and originally settled at Klemzig. Other settlements were started at Tanunda, Gnadenfrei, Hofffnungthal, New Mecklenburg, Siegerdorf, Neukirch, Nuriootpa, and Seppeltsfield. Soon Lutheran Church spires were seen all over the valley.
