Collapsed Holy Trinity church, Lyttelton

Collapsed Holy Trinity church, Lyttelton

The Holy Trinity church was the oldest stone building in Canterbury, and was built from local red rock and Quail Island sandstone. However, as this photograph from July 2011 shows, the church collapsed in the 22 February 2011 earthquake. It was demolished later that year.
