The Larnach Castle, New Zealands only castle. This is our first view coming up the drive.Built by banker and politician for his first wife and family, between 1873 and 1887.
View of the grounds from the top floor
Don looking down from the tower. it was really high and to get to the tower you had to clime skinny steps going up in a spiral. just like in the movies.
The tower from below, someone else taking photos.
The magnificent home. The barker family purchased the ruin 40 years ago and have been restoring it ever since. they have done a wonderful job. dont you think.
oh my lucky you! This is on my bucket list to visit.ReplyDelete
Finally catching up - loving your trip photos - they are reminding me of ours in Nov 2011. Have to look out some of our snaps as well.
