Chapter 8: Southern Hamlets, Villages, and Towns

8.58: Tyndall

The small community of Tyndall is located northeast of Winnipeg and west of Beausejour. The twinned PTH 44 1 bypasses the community to the south, and the straightened Devils Creek 2 that flows west into Lake Winnipeg is located in the southwest. The Canadian Pacific Railway line 3 used to pass west-northwest/east-southeast through the area. The northern part of the settlement has roads parallel to 4 and at right angles to 5 the now non-existent railway line 6. That part of the community that lies within the southern quarter section has north/south 7 and east/west 8 roads that harmonize with the DLS system. Other features that can be seen are:

1)  A long, narrow building 9 located just west of a north/south road 10 that runs along a section line. Given the shape of the building it probably houses a curling rink.

2)  Sewage lagoons 11, as usual, are located well outside the built-up area—in this case to the west.

3)  Even though the photo was taken in the summer there are wet patches in the fields 12.

Tyndall gives its name to Tyndall Stone although the stone is quarried at Garson, two miles (3.2 km) to the east. It was shipped from Tyndall.
