Monument at Kaiapoi (1st of 3)

Monument at Kaiapoi

In 1898, largely on the initiative of the missionary James Stack, who was based in the nearby Ngāi Tahu village of Tuahiwi, a monument was erected on the site of Kaiapoi . This lay to the north of the present-day town of Kaiapoi. The tall column rises from a bank reconstructed on the pā’s original defences.
