The largest woolshed in the colony
If History is your game, and the name Cargill rings a bell, well this is a must do, not that there is really much to see, aside from the largest stone building ruins in New Zealand! Just off the road in a lovely area called the Tiviot Valley, lies in a paddock a massive stone arch. The size of which is a little startling. The area is privately owned and the owners are lovely people. The ruins are now listed as a Historical place. This property was once one of the largest runs in New Zealand, the the shed itself could hold (allegedly) up to 11,000 sheep. Fire was eventually the demise in 1924, and half the ruins were bulldozed in 1982 as they were believed to be unsafe.
