Gladstone church

Gladstone church

Gladstone is a tiny farming settlement on the Mangahuia Stream, 15 kilometres south-east of Carterton. It is part of the Wairarapa tourist and wine trail, with cafés, a winery, a wheelwright shop and several homestays. Every spring a Scarecrow Festival is held in the fields. Nearby is the Hurunui-o-Rangi marae. The settlement was named after the 19th-century British prime minister and economic thinker William Gladstone.
