Iona Church, Port Calmers

 Port Chalmers, New Zealand.

Iona Church taken from Flagstaff
The church is in the centre of the picture with the container port to the right 
and the townsip to the left. Mount Cargill is in the distance.



Taken from across the township, on the opposite hill, and zoomed.
South side of the church.


Taken with a mobile phone and zoomed and so it is blurred.
East side.

We didn't get over to go inside, sorry.
I believe there has been several million dollars spent on 
strengthening and earthquake proofing in recent years.

  1. A magnificent looking church. And it looks like a nice little place snuggled in between the hills.

  3. Interesting, we have a small community of Iona locally. I like it when the church steeple towers over the community.

  9. That's a lovely church. I'm glad they didn't tear it down because it wasn't earthquake-proof.
