Here’s the last pix from our weekend in Little Akaloa…
There was a lovely old church, St Lukes, across the road from our “lodge” that was begging to be explored...so after my Saturday afternoon nap, with a glass of wine in hand and a costume change (of course!) we trotted on over.
"The church was constructed in 1905-06, with local farmer John Henry Menzies largely responsible for the buildings design, construction and raising the financing. The design, which blends European neo-gothic with internal Maori style decorative patterns and motifs is considered unusual"
The interior was rather gorgeous, but we weren't able to get a decent shot of the details.
The lichgate was originally at the entrance to the graveyard, but was moved to make way for a war memorial entrance. I don't see why they couldn't work the two together, but at least they kept the gate!
