Shantytown

Shantytown

Today we went to Shantytown which is NZ’s version of Beamish in the north east of England.

As well as the historic buildings we got to ride on a steam train and pan for gold. We struck gold but not enough to retire on. After looking round the old colonial style buildings we went for lunch in King Dicks Cafe.

We visited the Barbours, church,hospital, fire station and the jail.
