Mayfield Farm has burned to the ground on Tuesday night.

The heritage-listed site in Mernda went up in flames at around 12:30am and emergency crews tried to extinguish it but it sadly was gutted.

It’s not known what caused the fire but the arson unit is investigating.

Mayfield Farm was first built in the 1850s by Scottish migrant Moses Thomas and there were plans to turn it into a town centre in 2021.
